The boys from Letchworth Rugby Club will be sparkling for Marie Curie Cancer Care over the festive period for the third year running.

They are taking part in glittery rugby matches on Thursday, December 28, to raise vital funds for their local Marie Curie nurses.

From midday onwards, there are several matches between the juniors (seven to 17-year-olds), Saracens Bravehearts and Letchworth Vets.

The glittery match raised £300 for Marie Curie Cancer Care last year and they hope to raise even more this time around.

Club manager Peter Marsden said: "Just about every family in the club has been touched by cancer.

"We feel that Marie Curie Cancer Care is such a good cause that we all wanted to support them.

Community fundraiser Maria Griffin added: "It is fantastic to see that Letchworth Rugby Club have made Glitter Up an annual event.

"I am sure it will be another fantastic day this year and hope that lots of people will come down and join in on the fun."

Funds raised from the Glitter Up match will go towards the Marie Curie nursing service in Herts and South Essex.

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give terminal cancer patients the choice to die at home supported by their families.
