KENILWORTH RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
We are inviting all senior players, supporters, sponsors and suppliers to join us in Honouring The Fallen, those associated with our club who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country.
As first reported in the KRFC News for 24th October, the club have decided to join the M&Js in support of the British Legion and Poppy Appeal and participate in the Kenilworth Remembrance Day activities. The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community. For more information visit www.britishlegion.org.uk .
Through the early part of November, the senior club invites all players, supporters, suppliers and sponsors to make a donation to this most worthy of causes. Collection tins will be placed in the main club bar and at Cow Patch Café and we have set up our own fundraising page to make it as simple as possible for you to do your bit.
For the first time Kenilworth RFC will also be taking part in the memorial service. Army Veteran and Kenilworth RFC stalwart, Paul Fountain, will be laying a wreath at the War Memorial at 10.45am on the morning of Sunday, November 10th. All club members and representatives are invited to attend the ceremony and support Paul as we honour The Fallen from across Kenilworth, including the rugby club. We will be meeting at the Almanack pub from 10am and then make the short walk to the monument together.
Also, as a first, thanks to the hard work of our own Willie Whitesmith, Mick Wheatley (author of ‘Black & Blue – the History of Kenilworth RFC'), Paul Fountaine and local historian Susan Tall, the club knows more about our fallen heroes. Click HERE to read Willie’s short article and look out for the Kenilworth Weekly News who are also running a piece on this story.
We are working to create a lasting tribute to our Fallen at the club. More on this in due course.
On behalf of Kenilworth RFC we thank you for your support.
