On Wednesday, April 20, a squad from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust will take on the Commons and Lords rugby team in what has now become an annual event. There are still places available on the Cystic Fibrosis Trust team, giving you the opportunity to play on the Twickenham pitch.

The match raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust with each player contributing at least £500 for the privilege of playing at Twickenham. The game raised over £27,000 last year.

Cystic Fibrosis is the UK’s most common, life threatening inherited illness. In the UK, over 90% of people with Cystic Fibrosis die from lung damage. Each week five babies are born with CF and each week three young lives are lost. The CF Trust raise money for groundbreaking research into gene therapy and the pilot studies are showing encouraging results.

You can help those suffering with CF and have the opportunity to play at Twickenham. There are still spaces available on the Cystic Fibrosis team. Please contact Katie Burr on kburr@cftrust.org.uk or call 0208 290 8061 for more information.
