ON Saturday, 10 December 2011, Axarquia Rugby Club in Velez-Malaga, hosted a charity rugby match in support of under privileged children in Velez-Malaga.
Players, coaching staff and supporters all brought new or nearly new toys ready to be given to the children this Christmas. The presents included a child’s bike, cuddly toys, dolls, remote control cars, figurines and games – fantastic generosity which will be sure to brighten Christmas day in some local households.
Axarquia Rugby Club is committed to continue supporting the local community.
The match itself was the first team, including some up-and-coming cadets, against the veterans of the club – speed against brawn.
The match was played with great spirit and camaraderie and fittingly ended in a 17-17 draw with both sides scoring 3 tries each and one conversion.
With nearly 100 people watching, the whole event was hailed a great success for the children of Velez-Malaga and for the Axarquia Rugby Club.
