RUGBY fans across the Vale have been invited to scrum down to the Wood Norton Hotel for a charity dinner in aid of Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The winner of the hit BBC show The Apprentice, Mark Wright will host the evening on Saturday, October 3 which promises to be a spectacular event for rugby fans across the West Midlands.

A lavish drinks reception, delicious three course themed dinner and opportunity to watch the huge England v Australia match on the big screen.

Former internationals Shaun Perry and Jason Hobson will be on hand to provide commentary on the game while Mark will also be inviting guests to engage in ‘light-hearted’ competitive banter.

“I love rugby as much as the next guy, and couldn’t be more excited to host such a fun and worthwhile event,” Mark said.

“Acorns is an amazing charity that helps so many families across the West Midlands, and I am in great hope that we can raise as much money as possible to support its vital work.”

Shaun Perry understands the importance of the charity’s work with children and young people and their families, having spent several years as an ambassador for the charity when playing for Worcester Warriors.

“In being an ambassador for Acorns, I welcomed the opportunity to meet so many inspiring young children and families who I will genuinely never forget,” he said.

“I am delighted to be representing and supporting the charity again, and can’t wait to see what happens in that all important match.”

After full-time all guests will have the opportunity to meet and greet the speakers and provide additional support to the charity through a silent auction with top prizes donated by the Morgan Motor Company, Aston Villa FC, Worcester Warriors and Champagne Taittinger.

Tickets for what promises to be a special evening are £49.95 per person and can be purchased from Acorns.
