Pink Ladies that Lunch at Macclesfield Rugby Club

Pink Ladies that Lunch at Macclesfield Rugby Club
raised more than £500 for Breast Cancer Campaign


A Pre-match lunch and raffle raised much needed funds as part of the national ‘Wear It Pink’ campaign. – A ladies day hosted by Macclesfield Rugby Club  raised £526 for the Breast
Cancer campaign. The pink-themed pre-match lunch, which took place before The
Blues took on Cambridge R.U.F.C. on Saturday 21st January, saw Macclesfield’s rugby ladies joined by their partners at Priory Park to raise much needed funds for the national cancer charity.


More than 90 guests enjoyed a sumptuous four course meal while the ladies sipped pink champagne. A raffle with prizes generously donated by local firms raised money for the
charity which works to beat breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research to understand how breast cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure.


Prizes on the day included gym membership at Fitness 4 All in Bollington, a pink Pandora charm bracelet donated by PR Jones Jewellers Chestergate, a round of golf for four people at
Mottram Hall and perfumes from Chestergate Cosmetics.


Bill Roberts, Commercial and General Manager for Macclesfield Rugby Club commented; “This event has been a great success and we were thrilled with the turnout with the lunch completely
selling out well in advance. The atmosphere was fantastic and we’re pleased
with the funds we’ve managed to raise for this very worthy cause.”


Dawn Grover, support care manager for Breast Cancer Campaign added; “It is wonderful to see the effort Macclesfield Rugby Club has put in to making Ladies Day a success and we would
like to thank everybody involved for their generosity. The money raised will help the charity fund vital research into the disease”.


The day was rounded off nicely as guests watched The Blues continue their good run, beating Cambridge 43 – 19 to claim victory.
