Community | 7th February 2024

More than £15,000 was raised at the annual Cardiff Rugby Community Foundation lunch.

The great and good of Cardiff and Welsh Rugby descended on the Arms Park marquee on the eve of Wales’ Six Nations opener against Scotland.

Former internationals including Sir Gareth Edwards, John Taylor, Kevin Ellis, Craig Quinnell and Nicky Robinson all attended the event hosted by Foundation trustee Tom Shanklin. 

Guests were treated to Q&As with Wales hooker Dewi Lake, former Wales footballer Joe Ledley and actor Steve Speirs, while comedian Gary Marshall also provided entertainment.

Foundation director Nadine Griffiths said: “It was fantastic to see so many people out once again to support us. 

“This was the ninth year we have held this dinner and it is truly humbling to see how many people feel passionate about the #StayStrongForOws cause, the work the Cardiff Rugby Community Foundation do, and the generosity and support they show us. 

“As a foundation we encompass the #StayStrongForOws trust, and every penny raised goes towards that or one of our many programmes which, inspire, engage and improve opportunities for all. 

“Days such as this ensure we can continue making a different to people’s lives and our communities, while expanding and improving our reach 

“Thank you to everyone involved in planning and delivering a fantastic event and to all of those who attended to make it such an enjoyable day.”
