Oakleaf sponsor local world record attempt

Oakleaf is proud to be sponsors of the team shirts in a World Record Rugby Attempt to be held at the Worcester Warriors ground in Worcester on Friday 12 and 13 May 2017.

This world record attempt is to be the longest rugby match ever at 31 hours and is to raise funds for the Firefighters Charity who support programmes which include rehabilitation, recuperation, psychological & nursing across three centres, and they are totally reliant on donations and fundraising.

Wayne Bennett from our Health and Safety department is playing in this game and is also a retained firefighter in the Hereford & Worcester Fire Service based in Stourport-on-Severn for the past 12 years.

Wayne commented: “I would not be playing today if it wasn't for the work of the Firefighters Charity. I had an ankle reconstruction and spent two weeks at the rehabilitation centre at Harcombe in Devon.”

If you would like to sponsor Wayne in their world record attempt and to raise money for this great cause, please visit his JustGiving page:-

We wish good luck to Wayne and the rest of the team!
