Charity rugby match remembers former Wensleydale players

A charity rugby match will take place tonight to remember two former Wensleydale RUFC players.

The game at Wensleydale’s Cawkhill Park at 7.30pm will remember James Ashcroft and Charley Purkiss-McEndoo, who both died tragically in separate incidents in 2019.

The game will feature Wensleydale against and an invitational 15 billed as the C&J Allstars.

The event will raise money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Mind UK.

All welcome.

The bar will be open until late with food served.

A similar event last year raised almost £3,400 for charity with more than £3,600 already pledged for this year’s match.
