There's now just a week to go until our rugby Legends Lunch on St David’s Day (Friday 1st March) at Sophia Gardens.

We'll be joined by ex-Wales and British Lions player, Derek Quinnell, his son, Wales international, Craig, and rugby hero, Paul Thorburn, who'll be shedding some light on their careers and what it's like to play for their country. 

The host of the lunch will be ex-track and field athlete and rugby union player, Nigel Walker. Nigel is currently the National Director at the English Institute of Sport and is looking forward to the event.

“City Hospice does fantastic work and provides outstanding care, comfort and support to many families in their time of need.  For this to continue, it’s vital that it raises much needed funds.  None of us know when we, our family or friends will need the quality service offered as life limiting conditions are so indiscriminate. That’s why I’m supporting this great event.

As well as helping City Hospice to raise valuable funds, you will be royally entertained by some outstanding personalities from the world of rugby. Make sure you sign up for a ticket or better still a table!”

Formerly George Thomas Hospice Care, we provide medical, nursing and end-of-life care to patients in their own homes. We also families through counselling and alternative therapy sessions, and offer support through an Occupational Therapist, Social Worker and Welfare Benefits Advisor.

Daisy Magill, Fundraising Officer for City Hospice, would like to thank everyone involved in this event. “I’d like to thank our four rugby legends for agreeing to support this event and can’t wait to hear from them on the day. I’d also like to thank all those who have bought tables so far and would encourage any rugby fans out there to get your ticket while you can. By supporting this event, you’ll be helping us to continue our important work in communities across Cardiff and be there for patients and families when we're needed the most.”
