PEOPLE are being invited to get involved in a charity golf day to raise vital funds for community responders – and to support Coventry Rugby Foundation.
The charity helps youngsters and disadvantaged people in the Coventry community through the game of rugby.
Its Golf Day 2019 will be held at Stoneleigh Deer Park Golf Club on Thursday, September 26.
People can enter teams, sponsor the event or one of the 18 holes, or donate prizes for an auction.
The day includes breakfast, watching England v USA in the Rugby World Cup, a four-ball tournament. dinner and the charity auction.
The supported charity this year is Coventry Community Responders. Its volunteers provide life-saving treatment attending 999 calls to people in the Coventry and the surrounding areas, trained by the West Midlands Ambulance Service to a nationally recognised level.
Coventry Rugby Foundation works alongside Coventry Rugby Club but also exists as a separate entity in the community.
Its three programmes are:
* Reading and Rugby, an early intervention programme within primary schools where members of the Coventry Rugby squad work with individuals who need additional help with their reading and comprehension.
* Coventry Wheelchair Rugby. The Wheelchair Rugby team has been training since the start of the year and finished third in its category at its first ever tournament in May. The Wheelchair Rugby team trains on a weekly basis under the tutelage of multi-Paralympian Mandip Sehmi
* Project:500. This unique project within English professional club rugby is built around using rugby for a positive engagement with as many of the 16,000 children living in poverty within the city.
