Posted on: 11 October 2013

A charity rugby match will be played at Tiverton Rugby Club, Bolham Road, Tiverton on Friday 25 October.  The ‘Rugby Against Domestic Abuse’ match will raise funds for Stop Abuse For Everyone, which provides local domestic abuse services across Mid Devon.

Community Safety Officer, Julia Ryder is involved in the planning of this year’s event.  She said, “This is the fourth of these annual matches that raises funds to support local victims of domestic abuse.  In the last couple of years we have raised nearly £3000 and we hope to raise lots of money this year too.  This year we are not only having a raffle on the night but also a sealed bid auction for some very good prizes and the details are on the community safety webpages.  We hope many spectators will come along and support this event and help us raised lots of money.”

The gates will open at 6pm and the match will kick-off at 7pm.  Entry is £2 on the gate with under 12’s at 50 pence.   Everyone is welcome.

The raffle will be drawn during the second half of play and winners displayed at full time.

Sealed bids for the auction prizes including a wonderful piece of fine art, donated by Andrew Gilbert Fine Art of Mortonhampsted, and Exeter Chiefs tickets will also be confirmed by full time.  More details available at www.middevon.gov.uk/communitysafety .

This event is aimed at raising the profile of the support services available across Mid Devon.  Domestic abuse, or violence, within any relationship should not be accepted.  If you or someone you know is in an unhealthy relationship then please call the Devon Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0345 155 1074, or Stop Abuse For Everyone on 0800 3283070, for support or advice.
