On a sunny Saturday, the 2nd of September, the Old Brentwoods Rugby Club played host to a heartwarming event as they welcomed the Niall Stringer Foundation for a day of rugby, community, and fundraising. This special day was dedicated to honouring the memory of Niall Stringer, and it was a day that won't soon be forgotten.

A Generous Gesture from Brentwood Kia

Adding a touch of glamour to the day, Brentwood Kia generously donated a stunning Sportage for the weekend, which helped dress the pitch and elevated the event to new heights. Their support was a testament to the power of community and shared values.

A Remarkable Matchup

The highlight of the day was a thrilling rugby match that saw the Old Brentwoods 1st team facing off against the NS10 All Stars team, a lineup composed of Niall's friends and former teammates. The atmosphere was electric, with over 500 enthusiastic supporters turning up to cheer on the players.

The rugby on display was nothing short of spectacular, played in true Niall Stringer style—with flair, smiles, and a commitment to the sport that was inspiring to witness. While the NS10 All Stars emerged victorious, the real winner was the spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship that permeated the event.

Refreshment Convenience

Old Brentwoods Rugby Club took this special occasion to unveil their brand-new Mobil OB Refreshment Box, making it incredibly convenient for the attendees to quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger. This thoughtful addition to the event was greatly appreciated by everyone in attendance.

A Trophy for a Special Cause

In an unexpected twist, Brightstar Finance secured custody of the real Gallagher Premiership trophy for the day. This prestigious trophy was handed over to the NS10 All Stars, allowing them to lift it high and proud in honour of Niall Stringer. It was a touching moment that added to the emotional depth of the event.

A Resounding Success in Fundraising

The kindness and generosity of all those involved, and the attendees were truly overwhelming. Donations poured in throughout the day, and it's with great pride that we can announce that over an astonishing £2000 was raised for the Niall Stringer Foundation. This significant amount will undoubtedly go a long way in supporting the foundation's endeavours in fighting mental health

Old Brentwoods Rugby Club, the NS10 All Stars, Brentwood Kia, and Brightstar Finance, along with the entire community, came together to celebrate the memory of Niall Stringer and contribute to a wonderful cause. This event was a resounding success, and it serves as a reminder of the power of unity, sportsmanship, and generosity within our community.
