Charity rugby match for stricken Ellis

THE case of stricken Tilbury boy Ellis Lynch has touched the young players of Thurrock rugby club that they have decided to hold a charity match.

The under-15s boys team are hoping to attract more than 500 spectators to the flood-lit game against the Old Dartfordians.

Two-year-old Ellis was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) , a muscle wasting disease, in June this year.

The club will be selling programmes for £3 on the door and people will be going round with buckets at the game to raise extra funds for the Ellis Lynch Forget Me Knot Foundation.

A raffle and refreshments will be held in the clubhouse after the game on Friday, October 22.

The charity game will kick off at 7.45pm and before that there will be a presentation from T-Chix, a new girls rugby team for 15 to 18 year olds showing off their skills at the ground from 7pm.
