FOUR children with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses spent the day at a rugby club, thanks to a brewery’s sponsorship.

Upham Brewery invited children from Naomi House and Jacksplace Children’s Hospice to Hazelwood, the ground of Aviva Premiership rugby club, London Irish.

The event was part of Upham’s three-year sponsorship of London Irish, which started this year.

Players Jamie Hagan, Topsy Ojo and Tom Smallbone gave a rugby masterclass and tour.

Paul Morgan, from Naomi House, said: ‘The children loved being part of the day. We’d like to thank Upham and London Irish for this wonderful opportunity.’

Upham donated its shirt branding rights to Naomi House and Jacksplace at last Friday’s European Challenge Cup game against Grenoble in France, where alcohol sponsorship is banned.
