A RUGBY team is organising a rugby 10s tournament and family fun day on Saturday to help raise awareness and funds for three local charities.

Southsea Nomads’ tournament will be held at Portsmouth RFC with matches starting at 11am.

The event is free and teams including Southsea Nomads, Belle Isle Blues, Fareham Heathens and Gosport & Fareham will compete on the day, with the winners taking home an honorary plate.

All proceeds will go to The Rosemary Foundation, Second Chance and Wave Cash for Kids Initiative.

It is the second year running that the Nomads have organised the event.

Nomads club secretary Steve Hardman said: ‘This year’s tournament stands to be even bigger and better than last year’s.

‘We’ve got four more teams taking part, plus some great pitchside family entertainment along with local food stalls.

‘It’ll be a fun family-friendly day out plus an great opportunity to watch the region’s rugby talent.’
