Kick Cancer into Touch with Newick RFC

Cancer is happening right now, it affects all of us in some way and Newick RFC want to take a stand.

In July 2018, Newick RFC Chairman, ex first team captain Wayne Thomas, was diagnosed with esophageal and liver Cancer. The cancer is inoperable, but after smashing a course of chemotherapy it has shrunk. To celebrate the end of this treatment and to raise money to support cancer research, Wayne and the team at Newick RFC are pulling together to KICK CANCER INTO TOUCH.

On Saturday 6th April, 2019 Newick RFC hosted a Charity Rugby Game to raise important funds for Cancer Research. The game involved over 60 Newick RFC stars, both past and present and a few familiar faces!

Photographer Ron Hill was there taking the pictures and Steve Watson & Peter Suter of local Radio station Uckfield FM were broadcasting live from King Georges Playing Fields Newick for the big charity event ‘Newick Rugby Club Kicks Cancer Into Touch’.
