As you can imagine, the Wakefield family were not only devastated by the untimely death of their young son, but the cost of the healthcare has also created a massive financial burden for the family. So here's the plan.

On Friday 18th August at 8pm, the Leinster Supporters Club will be having a pre-season get together in the Horse Show House Ballsbridge.

We will also be holding a table quiz to raise some much needed funds for the family of the late Jack Wakefield and the intention is to make it as much fun as possible!

All the supporters of the Irish Rugby family are welcome and we would ask for a donation of at least €10 per person.

The funds raised will be presented to a representative of London Irish on the day of the pre-season friendly in Donnybrook on the 25th of August, kick off time 7:30pm) by one member from each Irish province.

After the game, the winning side will be presented with the Captain Jack Wakefield Memorial trophy. This trophy will be played for every time London Irish play any one of the Irish provincial teams.

Anyone who can't make the quiz night and would still like to donate can send a cheque/postal order to Robbie O'Connor care of the Leinster Branch. Please make sure that you state clearly what the cheque is in relation to. In addition, anyone who can donate a spot prize on behalf of themselves or their employer should also let Robbie know via the address below.
