Meinhardt Charity Touch Rugby Tournament 2018

Meinhardt UK will hold its annual corporate touch rugby tournament for the third year in a row on Thursday 13th September. Our aim is to help raise funds for Homeless Rugby CIC, a charity that tackles homelessness through sport.

Following the success of previous events, Meinhardt UK’s charity tournament returns once again and will play host to 10 corporate rugby teams from various companies across the property sector, all of whom will come together for an afternoon of friendly competition followed by a celebratory after-party.

All the teams have made generous donations to the charity through their entry fee and the contributions made from our key sponsors, Weston Homes, PolyPipe Civils, John F Hunt, JRL Group & Conrad Consulting, have made a significant impact on the money raised. Meinhardt together with Homeless Rugby CIC would like to thank everyone for their support and look forward to topping the previous funds raised.

The tournament will take place at the prestigious Honourable Artillery Company in the heart of London – with the evening celebrations at the Singer Tavern which is just a 5-minute walk away from the HAC.  We will be holding a Charity Raffle in the evening to help raise extra funds for the charity.  Top prizes will include a £100 Dining Voucher at Manicomio, a Fortnum & Mason hamper, Dinner for two at the Ivy, Kylie Minogue tickets at the O2 and a signed Harlequin Ball, along with many others.

To highlight how successful the previous events have been, we would like to share with our readers some of the fantastic feedback which we have had from our supporters:

“The Meinhardt Rugby Touch Rugby Tournament has been a huge success over the last two years raising some incredible sums of money for Homeless Rugby. It is also a great day to meet others from within the industry and build new and stronger working relationships with the people we work with. There is a huge amount of passion and dedication from a large team of people that goes into the organising it and I think it really shows in the tournament we deliver. Having refereed the past two events I am looking forward to hopefully playing this year!” Ashley Neale – Structural Associate Director

“The Meinhardt Charity Touch Rugby day is a really fun day out where you get to represent your company through playing sport, whilst meeting other professionals in the construction industry and it’s helping a good cause.” Craig Marchant – Civil Engineer
