Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is all set for its sixth annual Rugby Lunch sponsored by Dixon Stewart and Barclays, taking place on Friday 9 September at Hoburne Holiday Park in Christchurch. Due to the high popularity of the event, the charity is delighted to announce that two more tables are now on sale.

The Rugby Lunch is set to be a fantastic day of great entertainment, food, networking opportunities and guest celebrity appearances from Ugo Monye – a former English international rugby union player who played for Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership, David Flatman – a pundit and former rugby player for Bath and the England national rugby union team and David Duckham MBE, an ongoing and enthusiastic supporter of Diverse Abilities, who remains an England, Barbarians and British Lions legend, known in his day for his great pace, swerves and side steps.

Over the past five years the event has raised a combined total of over £115,000 and it is hoped this year will be a great success and funds will be raised to ensure the charity can continue to make a difference to children and adults with physical and learning disabilities in the county, and their families.

The sporting lunch kicks off at 11.45am with welcome drinks, before guests sit down for a three course meal and hear from the celebrity guest speakers. There will also be an opportunity to win the famous knife, fork and spoon, raffle and auction lots, of which prizes are donated from local businesses and celebrities. Tickets for the sporting lunch are £60 per ticket and £550 for a table.

Sharon Wells, events fundraiser, said: “This event has always been an incredible success and we are already looking forward to this year’s sporting lunch. This event is very popular and is in high demand, so we are selling two extra tables this year which is fantastic. If you enjoy Rugby this is the perfect event for you, so get in quick and contact us to purchase your tickets.”
