Armed Forces and Emergency Services Scrum Down for UHNM Charity

Serving and former armed forces personnel will be joining members of the emergency services in scrumming down for UHNM Charity.

A Combined Services Barbarians team will be taking on the Yorkshire Ambulance Rugby Union team at Newcastle Rugby Club on Saturday 20 August.

The match kicks off at 2pm with funds raised going to the Acute Stroke Unit and Rehab Therapies at University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust.

Andy Topham, Barbarians Manager and a serving firefighter of 23 years said: "Newcastle is my local community, the Royal Stoke is my local hospital and the NHS look after the whole country so they deserve the support. We’ve got army, navy and air force, the team from Yorkshire as well as all blue light services. There’s also Land Rovers, tanks, and plenty for people to see and do.”

Steve Rushton, Head of UHNM Charity said: “It will be a fabulous day where the whole community comes together to support the work of UHNM Charity and help us to improve the care and experience of local people using our services. Everybody is invited to come down to the club and cheer on the lads whilst raising vital funds for UHNM Charity.”
