For our home match against Bath Rugby on Saturday, April 19 we are turning pink to raise funds and awareness for the charity. Women can purchase tickets for all the games at a special price of £15, with £4.25 of every ticket coming directly to Breast Cancer Care. Tickets are available now on 0870 990 5650.
A variety of special match day activities will be on offer at every Guinness Premiership ground - and at Sixways Stadium we will be certainly doing our part!
While the Warriors staff will be dressed in pink we will also be running a 'Pink & Proud' competition with the best dressed supporters - all pretty in pink of course - winning tickets to the Player Awards Dinner.
A special Pink 'n' Gold Gamble will be taking place around the site and we will have a special Pink Bar in the East Stand. Special stands in the South Stand will include Tina Iacovelli Accessories, I Do Nails, Perfect Brows, Virgin Vie and Stone Me and a car in front of the South Stand will also be wrapped in pink with an amazing competition to guess the registration plate and drive away with that very motor!
Our Touch Rugby demonstration at half-time will have a pink theme and the Warriors Allstarzz will be performing in pink along with a host of other exciting events on the day. Check out the official club website as the day approaches for even more details.
Kathy Leather, Commercial Director at Warriors, said: "This is a great opportunity for rugby to see just how many ladies do attend matches each week, enjoy the game and show a good knowledge of the club and team.
"This weekend is all about showing your support for the 44,000 women and 300 men who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Guinness Premiership club rugby is a great sport for all the family to enjoy and it's a chance to wear pink and show your support whilst enjoying world class entertainment."
To find out more about Tackled Pink visit http://www.tackledpink.com/, a specially designed website which gives some introductory rugby advice, a means to get your reduced rate tickets and further information about Breast Cancer Care.
Breast Cancer Care is a unique charity offering vital support and information to anyone affected by breast cancer including their friends and families.
Dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis can be a very lonely and scary experience not only for the patient but for their friends and families too. Thanks to Breast Cancer Care, people no longer have to face it alone. Breast Cancer Care is there to support people every step of the way from helping people to be diagnosed earlier to offering practical and emotional support whenever, wherever they need it.
During the day we will also be promoting the local breast care unit which is a much needed facility and will eventually be on the Worcester Royal Hospital site. If you would like to give further support contact Kathy Leather on 01905 459326 or email Kathy@wrfc.co.uk
