As the season comes to an end for all our teams there is one particular section of our club that have an opportunity to demonstrate all their hard work to a local, national and international audience at the 2018 Mini Festival.

A key part of our annual calendar, we anticipate thousands of adults and children to visit Hazelwood for the Festival. For this the mini committee have been working hard over the past months to put all the logistics in place to make the event a success.

But like all events we need the support of both those participating and maybe those who are a little older to be running out for the mini’s by selling tickets for the Raffle.

This year we have an exceptional list of prizes money can’t and can buy for those who love the game and those who might prefer something a little more conventional. An exclusive training session with the professional team including lunch, signed London Irish materials, a signed Leinster Jersey (inc Johnny Sexton), (full List Below).

So, can I remind and encourage you all to approach family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and those who love the game to give them an opportunity to win one of these fantastic prizes while supporting a truly great festival.

Thank you, good Luck and get Selling for your Club,
