Redruth RFC hosted the Cancer Research team for a ‘Blow the Whistle on Cancer’ match day. 

The Reds were cheered onto the pitch by a guard of honour of Cancer survivors, a group of people who have faced and are facing a much greater challenge than trying to win a rugby match. The Redruth players in their honour wore special socks in cancer research colours generously donated by Paul Hancock of Granite Sports. These socks were presented to the players in the dressing room pre-match by Brenda Pedley, which must have been a very special moment.

Off the field there were:

• A Cancer awareness stall in the Pool Room.

• A Half-Time Bucket Collection 

• A Cake Stall and Take Away Cream tea stall in the foyer

• A Man-of the match draw with the winner to enjoy a meal for two generously donated by the Penventon Park Hotel. 

It was a fantastic day at the club with a great win on the field as well and over £1,200 raised for a great cause.
