RUGBY teams went head-to-head at a breast cancer charity day to raise money for two good causes.

A highlight of the event organised by Arlecdon Rams Masters Rugby League was an all-women’s match which saw Arlecdon Ladies take on Whitehaven and Workington Ladies.

A total of £1,800 was raised with £200 going to The Little Princess Trust and £1,600 going to Breast Cancer UK.

A statement from Arlecdon Rams said: “It’s been a turbulent weekend for the club, but one that has made us immensely proud.

“The undoubted highlight of the day was our all women’s match, played at a fantastic pace with genuine skill and passion, an hour of great rugby which fittingly ended in a draw with each team getting a try.

“Good Luck Workington Town Ladies for the rest of the season, good luck with to Whitehaven RUFC with the ladies team going forward and hopefully this is just the start for the Arlecdon ladies’ side.

“Thank you to everyone that helped us raise the cash, and those who got involved with the entertainment in the club after the matches, you turned out in droves to help us raise money.”

Organisers also thanked all the firms and people who donated prizes and items for raffle or auction, Adams Hall staff, photographers, Arlecdon players and everyone who played from Rebel Masters, Carlisle Masters Rugby League and Barrow and District Masters Rugby League.
