Club volunteers from across North Midlands have been recognised for their outstanding service with memorable trips to Twickenham and opportunities to watch England play this season.
Pairs of tickets for three of the autumn internationals were presented to valued volunteers from across North Midlands.
As part of the RFU’s sponsorship with Mitsubishi Motors, Kidderminster Carolians stalwart Phil Knowles spent a day at Pennyhill Park watching England prepare for one of the Six Nations Internationals.
As part of the day Knowles had lunch with the England team and had photos taken with head coach Eddie Jones and some of the players.
North Midlands then nominated John Forster of Edwardians as a candidate for the RFU President’s Value the Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award.
Forster and his wife Theresa were invited to Twickenham for the England v France Six Natins match where they enjoyed a tour of the stadium, lunch, and the players’ post-match meal.
Forster was presented his prize by Eddie Jones.
Keith Skirving, North Midlands Volunteer Co-ordinator, and the North Midlands Community Rugby Committee would like to recognise more of the Army if volunteers who underpin rugby across North Midlands with similar memorable experiences.
Clubs are also asked to confirm the name and details of their Club Volunteer Co-ordinator as soon as possible.
