On Friday, 10 March, Henley Rugby Club supporters and sponsors enjoyed an excellent evening at Dry Leas for their annual Winter Sporting Supper, sponsored by long-standing supporters of the club, Hobbs of Henley. Guests were treated to a fabulous three course dinner and entertainment from both MC and Comedian, Adger Brown and BBC Radio 5 Live commentator, Pat Murphy. A considerable sum of money was raised through wonderful auction prizes for the new changing facilities at Dry Leas – the next phase of development following the successful transformation of the Clubhouse last year.
On the pitch, whilst a spirited Hawks went down 38-28 to League Leaders, Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday, off the pitch, the club was buoyed by a £1,000 donation from local sponsors, Savills. For every house that is sold by a member of the Club through Savills, the Estate Agents kindly donates £1,000 to Henley RFC.
