Camborne Rugby Club is playing host for the third year to a festival of rugby in aid of charity. This years fundraising event is set to be bigger and better with more rugby and entertainment on offer. As with the previous two years this is being supported by local businesses including Cornwall Segway, Mill Autoquip, WG Entertainment and Will Secure.
The Jacob Maloy Osteosarcoma Trust 7s Day at Camborne Rugby Club on Saturday 13th May will start at 11.00am with a Rugby 7s competition featuring teams from across Cornwall. Ahead of the finals there will be a 10-a-side exhibition match, featuring local legend ‘Mad George’. The Rugby 7s finals will kick off from 3.00pm and will be followed by the City of Truro Male Choir performing in the clubhouse.
Jacob Maloy was a keen rugby player who played all his mini/junior rugby at Perranporth Rugby Club before joining Camborne Colts. Sadly he was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, osteosarcoma, and passed away aged just 17. The Jacob Maloy Osteosarcoma Trust was set up in his memory and this event hopes to build on the success of the previous years, with hundreds turning out in support.
There will also be kids entertainment, food and a bar during the day, while the evening entertainment will be a mixture of local talent performing acoustic, chilled and uplifting music followed by disco until late. Tickets are now available at only £5 each and under 16’s are free, but they must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone wishing to buy a ticket can do so from any of the following places:
- Camborne Rugby Club
- Perranporth Rugby Club
- The Watering Hole, Perranporth
- Snippets, Perranporth
- North County Garage, Redruth
- 108 Coffee, Kenwyn Street, Truro
- Lemon Heads Barbers, Lemon Street Market, Truro
Alongside the action on the pitch throughout the day, there will also be an auction with a selection of rugby memorabilia and other sporting items. This festival of rugby should be a great family, fun-filled day in memory of a talented young player.
