Rugby Raffle: Final Draw postponed until Friday

The final raffle draw in the 2010 Charity Raffle has been postponed until Friday, for a couple of reasons.

The main reason is because we’d like to raise a little more for the Tag Rugby Trust in order to do justice to the quality of prizes that various people have kindly donated.

The other benefit is that it delays the inevitable frustration when I take all the prizes to the local Post Office, where the ineptitude is quite remarkable.

So, if you haven’t already entered, please, please do so at
