A 24-hour touch rugby festival will be held at Goldfields Recreation Ground in Greetland on Friday in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The fundraiser has been inspired by the rugby community coming together after the devastating news of Doddie Weir, Rob Burrows and Ed Slater’s conditions and the impact of motor neurone disease on them.

Organisers want to raise as much money as they can to help find a cure for the disease.
