Robbies Rugby Festival 2019 Sports

robbies_rugby_festival_2019


Robbie's Rugby Festival returns for it's 11th year with Tom and Ben Youngs as event ambassadors.

Taking over Loughborough Grammar School Playing Fields, this celebrated charity rugby tournament has already raised in excess of £81,000 for the Robbie Anderson Cancer Trust and The Jake McCarthy Foundation. The Festival is expected to once again attract great crowds who will be supporting these two deserving charities.
This year, two Leicester Tigers and England rugby legends Ben and Tom Youngs have been announced as Event Ambassadors for the 2019. The Youngs brothers said of their appointment; “We are enormously proud to be able to support Robbie’s Rugby Festival as Event Ambassadors. This very special rugby tournament raises vital funds for The Robbie Anderson Cancer Trust and The Jake McCarthy Foundation, and we hope to be able to encourage more people to raise money and help make a real difference to those suffering. Together we can help fight against cancer, a cause very close to us both”.
0n 8th May 2019, a Therapy Room for the children’s oncology ward and Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at The Leicester Royal Infirmary was opened by Tom Youngs and a number of his fellow Leicester Tigers players, funding for which was facilitated enormously by money raised from Robbie’s Rugby Festival. The new Therapy Room will be a haven where young people undergoing treatment for cancer and often enduring long stays in hospital will be able to relax, unwind, have fun and feel very special.
Visitors can expect not only a day of exciting rugby action, but a whole host of fun activities that will make this a fabulous day out for all the family, including The Rugby Village sponsored by The Loughburians. This promises to be the hub of the rugby action, housing not only an outside bar, but physio tent, hot tub, face-painting, ice-cream van and water tent. The Summer Garden is sponsored by The Little Retreat and will bring together all the elements of a typical British Summer celebration including jugs of Pimms, a fabulous gin bar, BBQ, raffle and afternoon tea stand.
This year, the festival’s eleventh year will be celebrated with the return of The Party on the Pitch – a full evening of entertainment, live music, photo booths and charitable fun activities.
