Eccles DofE Auction evening

On Saturday 25th October this year, a fundraising auction will be held on behalf of the Duke of Edinburgh’s award..

Eccles RFC are proud to have been the 1st rugby club in the country to provide the award to its young players and achieve a success rate 3 times higher than the national average.

The club is now entering its fifth year of providing the award and the number of young people wishing to participate is increasing year on year.

It is with this in mind that an Auction evening will be held to raise funds to continue to support the venture.. Auctioneer will be the clubs own Nick Delaney and the host with the most will be William “Billy the Bullett” Borrett. There will be a fee for tickets, but this will include a supper, and the young people involved in the award will, along with an item catalogue, be passing among the crowd to show off our auction items.

If you’re wondering why you should support the evening and also the award at the club then visit the link below to see what the award offers to young members of Eccles RFC :-

If you wish to donate an item for auction, then contact either Paul or Vivienne Newton on or any of the other adults involved with the award at the club.

We look forward too seeing lots of you there on the night.


Thank you

The adult leaders & young participants of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
