A clash in aid of Movember, the men’s health charity, is set to take place at Richmond Rugby Club on Saturday 20th November between Movember Mo Bros and Kew Occasionals, with fans of the sport invited to the Athletic Ground to watch the match and donate to an enormously important cause.

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health on a global scale, focusing on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Kicking off at 1:30pm at the South West London club, the match between the two squads will be the first 15 a-side fixture the Mo Bros have played, following their inaugural outing at the Bournemouth 7s earlier this year. The Kew Occasionals squad features graduates from Oxford, Cambridge and Trinity Dublin. Given their reputation for playing a fast and open game, an exciting, high-scoring match is expected.

The Movember fixture coincides with Richmond’s Championship match against Ampthill, taking place on the main pitch at 1pm. And having amped themselves up with the two games at the club, fans are welcome to stay to watch the England vs South Africa test match live on the big screen.

Entry to the Movember match is free, but donations in aid of Movember are encouraged with both cash and contactless payments accepted on the day. Alternatively, donations can be made via this link: https://uk.movember.com/events/view/id/3o2V
