Military vs Cancer Armed Forces Day Rugby Event

Brunton Rd
Kenton Bank Foot
Newcastle upon Tyne NE13 8AF

The Newcastle Falcons have very kindly agreed to support a Military vs Cancer Armed Forces Day Rugby Event at their 10,400 seat stadium; Kingston Park Stadium. The event will involve 1 or 2 games of rugby and we have been approached by UK Armed Forces RFC, UK Armed Forces RFC Vets, Durham University and Northumberland Rugby Union are also looking at putting a Barbarian side together. This event will be open to the general public and should attract attention from the Newcastle Falcons crowd, Durham University attendees, local industry and of course military personnel past and present. The event will commemorate the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces, raise awareness of Military vs Cancer and provide revenue to the local area. Fundraising will take place but will not be the main objective of the event.

The event will be advertised on the Military vs Cancer website in due course – www.militaryvscancer.com

Military vs Cancer is a registered charity – registered charity number 1199115
