Are you ready for the most exciting charity sports events of the year?

This Spring, some of the region’s best rugby players are coming together for this brand new fundraiser! The selected players from Herefordshire and South Shropshire clubs will be playing as part of the Hospice Barbarians and you will get to watch the excitement of their first ever match.

Come and watch them take on the mighty Luctonians all in aid of St Michael’s Hospice.

The best bit? It’s free to spectate!
But we’d love you to make a donation on the day to help them reach their fundraising goal.

There’s no tickets to book, just simply turn up at Mortimer Park, Kingsland on the day ready to cheer them on. We’d suggest getting there early though to secure a seat.

Making a day of it

The gates will open from 2pm with the licensed bar and food offerings ready to go. After the match stay on to watch the presentations.


“As you will know our Hospice is a very important part of our community and the delivery of palliative care and end-of-life support is often passed over until the day or time it is needed and for so many, it holds their lives together at that critical moment.”

— Hospice Barbarians Founder Nick Nenadich
