Rugby Club calling
The Durham Masonic Rugby Football Club (DMRFC) are on the lookout for new players and members, not only to take part in the great sport, but to help support excellent initiatives like Zoe’s Place.
Founding Chairman of DMRFC, Richard Hogg, together with Andy Dixon and Kieran Fyland of Spirit of Rugby Lodge No.9910 represented the club at Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice for the presentation of a plaque from children’s charity of rugby “Wooden Spoon”, of whom Richard is also the Treasurer in Durham.
DMRFC are a partner club of Wooden Spoon, who have just funded the purchase of two special needs cots for Zoe’s Place. The hospice provides respite and palliative care to terminally- and seriously-ill children from across the Province and beyond.
Also in attendance at the presentation were representatives from Rugby Tots, the joint presidents of Wooden Spoon Durham, England Six Nations Rugby Captain Tamara Taylor and ex-Newcastle Falcons hooker Rob Vickers.
