Nottingham goes pink for a good cause

USUALLY it's all about the 15 men on the rugby field, but on Sunday it's all about the ladies at Meadow Lane.

Nottingham Rugby will pack its traditional green and white home kit away this week and instead turn out in fabulous pink against RFU Championship new-comers Jersey.

Nottingham pink

Pretty in pink: Nottingham Rugby captain Brent Wilson (L) and Tom Calladine (R) unveil their new pink shirt alongside Samantha Gathercole from Nottingham Hospitals Charity in support of the Breast Cancer Research Appeal.

The eye-catching colour change is part of the club's Ladies Day in support of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, Breast Cancer Research Appeal, which aims to raise £50,000 a year for breast cancer research in Nottingham.

With the second annual Ladies Day function hosted as part of the Half-Price Big Day Out, the pink-tinged Green and Whites are calling on people to dig deep for a good cause.

Nottingham captain Brent Wilson, who modeled the new flowery pink threads with teammate Tom Calladine, says Sunday is all about focusing as much attention as possible on the Breast Cancer Research Appeal.

"I'm a person who would usually try argue that I'm wearing salmon, but this weekend I'm proud to don this very, pink, very loud charity shirt," Wilson said.

"Tickets are 50 per cent off for this match, so this is a game for all those people who might not normally come down to a match to see us in action while giving to a very worthy appeal. Even if they don't know the finer points of the game, no one in the stands will miss any part of the action with the amount of colour splashed across Meadow Lane this week."

Samantha Gathercole from the Nottingham Hospitals Charity said Nottingham Rugby's commitment, while not exactly made for the catwalks of Milan and Paris, is a surefire Autumn fashion hit.

"The pink shirts look very eye-catching and it's great to see the players are all willing to man up and sport such a fetching colour in aid of our Breast Cancer Research Appeal," Gathercole said.

"The support of Nottingham Rugby through the Ladies Day event will make a huge difference to our appeal to raise £50,000 towards breast cancer research here in Nottingham. It's a cause that's close to many people's hearts, and we hope the people of Nottingham will get on board and come along to this fun event in aid of the appeal."

There will be plenty of opportunities to donate to the appeal on Sunday at Meadow Lane Stadium, but you can also give online at www.nottinghamhospitalscharity.org.uk
