Diverse Abilities, Dorset’s disability charity, is all set for its seventh annual Rugby Lunch sponsored by Dixon Stewart and Barclays, taking place on Friday 8th September at Hoburne Holiday Park in Christchurch.

The Rugby Lunch is set to be a fantastic day of great entertainment, food, networking opportunities and guest celebrity appearances from Conor O’Shea - a former Irish rugby player and coach who is currently head coach for the Italian national team, David Flatman – a pundit and former rugby player for Bath and the England national rugby union team and David Duckham MBE - an England, Barbarians and British Lions legend, known in his day for his great pace, swerves and side steps.

Over the past six years the event has raised a combined total of over £142,000 and it is hoped this year will be a great success. Funds will be raised to ensure the charity can continue to make a difference to children and adults living with disabilities in the county, and their families.

Ashley Weedon, fundraising manager at Diverse Abilities, said: “This event has always been an incredible success and we are already looking forward to this year’s lunch. If you enjoy rugby this is the perfect event for you, so get in quick and contact us to purchase your tickets.”

The sporting lunch kicks off at 12noon with welcome drinks, before guests take their seats 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.

By booking one table at the Rugby Lunch attendees will be providing the opportunity for one child to enjoy a sleepover at the charity’s children’s respite home, giving their parents a much-needed rest.
