Tribute Dinner to Shane Williams

Current and former rugby internationals will be packing out a Cardiff hotel to share stories about Shane Williams and raise money for charity. The former Wales and British lion is the star guest at the tribute dinner being organised in his honour by the Welsh Charitables RFC.

Rugby fans can buy tickets now for this event which takes place on Saturday 3rd September at the Mercure Holland House Hotel. All the money raised will go to the Welsh Charitables RFC Benevolent Fund.

Tickets are £55 per head, £550 per table of 10, and includes a five course meal and free drinks reception. It is 6:30pm meet for a 7:15pm sit down. Call David Power on 07973 705062 or to get your tickets.

David Power, secretary of the Welsh Charitables RFC, said: “Several rugby greats will be sat alongside Shane on the top table and take turns to give their insight into this great man who only retired from international rugby four years ago. These dinners are special occasions for fans as they can meet and chat with the players they have cheered from the stands. They will hear some wonderful stories about Shane which promises to make it a memorable occasion.

“The main point of the evening is to raise money for our Benevolent Fund. Later this year we will be making donations to the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust and The Princes Trust Cymru. Another charity we support is St David’s Hospice Care and our aim for 2016 is to buy them a blood bank refrigerator to help with their vital work. It’s thanks to the generosity of rugby fans that we are able to support our charities.

Joining Shane and his wife Gail on the evening will be a number of former Wales & British Lion International Greats some of whom will be giving us all an insight into this great man and sharing some wonderful stories which promises to make the evening a memorable occasion.
