Bar Help needed
• Kenilworth's pre season games will be against Leamington, away, on Tues 19th August, kick off 7pm. The following week, 26th August we will entertain Leamington in a return game at Glasshouse Lane. Our pre season will then conclude with a first round Warwickshire Cup game away at Old Coventrians on Sat 30th August, kick off 3pm. The third XV are also having a pre season game against Stratford 3's at home on Friday 29th August, kick off 7pm.
• There has been a change to our league fixtures and, due to work being undertaken at Silhillians, we have switched our fixtures with them and our first home league fixture is now v Silhillians on the 6th Sept. Our new 2014/15 programme will be on display for this game. Who will be the cover star this year?
• This season we are continuing to offer Player Sponsorship @ £120. It is hoped that the sponsors from last season will continue but there are other players available at £120 (+vat). Your name will be publicized in the programme with a link to your web site (if applicable) from the KRFC site.
• This season we are holding a series of Charity Pre-match Charity Luncheons aimed at raising a significant amount for a local Charity. Last year the lunch for the 'Get Ahead' Charity Raised £1000. The first of this season's lunches is now planned for 27th September and this will be in aid of Myton Hamlet Hospices, a Charity well known to everyone locally, with the Event Sponsors being Reeds Rains, Estate Agents, thanks to Nik Kyriacou with our main sponsor Gingernut-Creative supporting the event. The second Pre-Match Charity Luncheon will be on 25thOctober 2014 in aid of Molly Olly Charity thanks to Danny Rawlings and Jonathan Brown. The aim of this charity is to support emotionally and financially, where appropriate the lives of children with terminal or life threatening illnesses throughout The Midlands and the UK and to advise and assist their families. The money raised will help support children and their families who need additional help beyond that given by the NHS and its supporting bodies. http://www.mollyolly.co.uk/
These events are aimed at businesses supporting local charities and if you take a table your company will get a brief mention in terms of the services they offer on the menu which each guest will receive. Places are available for both events at £20 of which at least £5 will go to the charity and there will be raffles etc on the day to raise further funds.
