Ledbury Rugby Club’s annual hamper raffle took place last weekend, raising vital funds to help keep the club running.

Hampers donated by players, coaches and board members raised a total of £1,600.

The club runs youth teams from Under 6s through to Under 16s, as well as colts, ladies, first and second-team seniors.

There’ll be festive fun at Ledbury RFC this Wednesday (December 22) as the club hosts Father Christmas in his grotto.

There will be Christmas carols, mulled wine and mince pies from 4pm to 7pm. Tickets are £3 per child and include a present. To book, call 01531 631788 or drop LRFC a message on Facebook.

Tickets are also on sale for the rugby club’s New Year’s Eve bash, ‘A night at the Oscars’. There will be a casino table, photobooth, fireworks, hog roast and gin bar from 7pm until late.

All tickets must be booked in advance. They cost £35 and can be bought by calling 01531 631788 or emailing barmanager@pavillionrooms.co.uk
