Junior rugby presentation and fun day
Sunday 7th May 10am onwards

This will be a fantastic and fun end to what has been a brilliant season for the junior players and their families. We are raising money for ORRUFC and Children's Chronic Arthritis Association (CCAA).

The event starts at 10am and will include bar, BBQ, stalls, raffle, bouncy castle and lots of games. Under 9s Sam Moore was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) at the age of 10 months old. Sam has gone through times where he has been unable to get out of bed, walk down the stairs and run around the playground with his friends. Sam is the most determined child I know. He plays every sport going and will not let his arthritis take this away. He has to endure a weekly injections and other medicines to try and keep his arthritis at bay.

Three years ago his parents found out about the CCAA charity. They provide help and information for children living with JIA and their families. They offer emotional and practical support to maximise choices and opportunities and raise awareness of childhood arthritis in the community. They organise family information weekends to enable families to meet others for networking, support and information about JIA. Sam and his parents attended one of these weekends two years ago. It allowed Sam to have a fantastic time doing lots of activities with other children with JIA, and for parents to meet other parents going through the same feelings and emotions.

The money raised will allow more awareness of and publicity of CCAA plus of course funding for Rishies. Everyone is welcome for this lovely family event. Please share with all your team players and their families. If any of you or your families can donate any raffle prizes, second hand kit and/or cakes for our stalls it would be much appreciated.
