The charity of a rugby team

Have your say

A RUGBY team has raised more than £800 for Queen Alexandra’s cardiology ward with a tournament in Augustlast year.

Southsea Nomads hosted the tournament in Portsmouth and competed with six local teams.

It was organised to celebrate the ongoing recovery of former player Alan Cole, 61, who had a heart attack during a match last year.

The money was raised because of Alan’s four-month stay at the cardiology ward.

About £2,000 was also given to brain injury charity Headway and The British Heart Foundation.

‘The tournament was a huge success and I’m very grateful to all the teams and supporters who came and made the day so successful,’ said Martin Drum, the team chairman.
