Rugby Captains Dinner 3 Weeks To Go

Wed 31 Oct 2018

Do you remember the feeling of national pride back in 2003, when the British and Irish Lions lifted the coveted Webb Ellis Cup? What a year to remember in British rugby history! Relive this historic occasion at the annual Rugby Captains Charity Dinner on Monday 21st November 2018 at Battersea Evolution. 

The event, which last year raised £55,000 for local charities, is a unique evening to rub shoulders with some of England’s elite rugby players who played in the winning team in 2003, as well as other key rugby personalities. 

So, who’s coming? The opposing Australian captain, George Gregan, as well as Sir Clive Woodward, Lawrence Dallaglio, Martin Corry, Will Greenwood, Jason Leonard, Kyran Bracken, Lewis Moody and Simon Shaw. 

It’s an evening expertly put together and hosted by Smart Group and this year is raising money for Willow; The Matt Hampson Foundation and Dallaglio RugbyWorks. Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable special days. The Matt Hampson Foundation helps people ‘get busy living’ again after a life-altering injury. Whether that means helping them get back into sport, or just assisting them in adjusting to their new life, they are there to offer help and support on their chosen path. Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which they aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.

What should guests expect?

  1. A Champagne and canapé reception followed by a four-course dinner from M Restaurants by Smart. This menu is not to be missed – trust us!
  2. Hosted Q&A session with English rugby personalities followed by live entertainment
  3. Then open those wallets for the live auction with the opportunity to win once-in-a-lifetime prizes that you don’t want to miss out on. Some of last year’s prizes included a Luxury Villa for Ten on an exclusive South African Vineyard, Royal Airforce Helicopter Simulator Experience and photos with three of the British and Irish Lions Captains.

If you’re a diehard rugby fan this event is not to be missed!
