£1,000 raised for British Legion

Olney RFC fundraising hits the mark

Representatives from the British Legion were presented with a cheque for £1,000 raised by Olney RFC at a special event last year. Pictured from left to right are Chris Roberts from the British Legion, 1st XV Captain Jim Osborn, and Alleyn Thomas.

Back on 11 November 2017 Olney players donned a special remembrance day kit for their fixture against Pinley. The strip was sponsored by local businesses including Desmond J.Smail, S.R.Osborn Fencing, Marcus Jordan & Co, and Astrum Construction.

Following a two minute silence in recognition of Remembrance Day, Olney won the game 66-0 in front of a large crowd.

Money was raised on the day for the British Legion with a raffle, and from selling the special edition kit after the game. We were delighted to present the British Legion with this cheque, and thank you to everyone for supporting them!
