Hannath Cup @ The Portadown Panthers HOME RAISES £8000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 minutes, 14 seconds Read

hhannaAt the beginning of the summer and the close of the Tag rugby season, Hannath held its first annual Tag Rugby Cup. We had a number of local businesses entering teams on the day, from banks to solicitors, building contractors to food suppliers, a really good mix of the local and province wide business community, all pulling together for a family corporate day, raising funds for 2 very important local charities.

Hannath sponsored the event allowing all proceeds from the team registration, family fun events, bucket collections and auction to go towards the final figures raised of £7,500.

We were delighted to present £5,500 to the Portadown Panthers, our local Tag Rugby Club catering for boys and girls aged 6+ to young adults who have a Learning Disability. The charity is all about promoting equality, tackling poverty and social exclusion through sport!

A further £2,500 was presented to Tiny Life, Northern Ireland’s premature and vulnerable baby charity, dedicated to reducing premature birth, illness, disability and death in babies born here.

The day was a great success and with the weather on our side we saw great matches played between the Muffin Men (Irwins Bakery) and the Law Blacks (Walker Legal), Roofer Blue Jays (David Jameson Roofing) and the Wisdom Tooth Warriers (DJ Maguires & Son). This all culminated in a fairly serious final between the Seagoe Socials ( Seagoe Hotel) and the overall victors aptly named The Select Few(SMFS Banbridge)

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the companies who entered teams, those who joined us on the day. Most importantly all of the companies that gave generously to support the event, Irwins bakery, Linden foods, Seagoe hotel, Graceland Print & Design, The Yellow door. The sense of community centred support shown by the members and staff at PRFC was amazing and made this a truly inclusive local event, and without their time and support it would never have happened!

It was a great family event and the sense of community was very special and added so much to the day! Hannath are hoping this will be an annual event and really hope you will all join us again next year for The Hannath Cup June 2016!!
