The Rugby Family is BIGGER than rivalry. You may be aware of the predicament of Paul Curtis, the former Rosslyn Park and Quins prop. He had a cycle accident last September and is now paralysed and wheelchair bound. Quins are raising money for Paul to renovate his house to make it wheelchair friendly, it is estimated this will cost £150,000. One of the fundraising events we are planning for the Paul Curtis Fund is a bike ride from Bognor Regis to Harlequins on Saturday September 9th, starting at 7.30am.

The ride includes a fully supported 70 mile cycle and a ticket for the Quins v Gloucester match. The ride is being supported by a number of former Quins players including Dick Best, Will Carling, Jason Leonard and Brian Moore, alongside Gloucester Legend Mike Teague.

LIARFC have members who either know or played with Curto and would like to support the fundraising efforts. If you wish to register for the ride they can do so by clicking on this link
