Men’s Day Out 2015 – Powered by IU Energy
St Luke’s Hospice Men’s Day Out 2015 is Plymouth’s largest ‘men only’ event, returning for a second year on Saturday 21 March 2015 at Plymouth Albion RFC.
The event, sponsored for the second consecutive year by IU Energy, will take the form of an eight-mile sponsored walk across Plymouth City Centre and the South West Coastal Path.
Afterwards fundraisers will be treated to a pint and a pasty at Plymouth Albion’s hospitality area before finishing off the day with a game of rugby as the mighty Albion take on Yorkshire Carnegie. This will be followed with the opportunity to watch the Six Nations clash between England and France.
Last year was St Luke’s first attempt at a ‘men only’ event as Senior Fundraiser at St Luke’s, Emma Winter explains: “In 2014 we were blown away by the support. The event sold out and over 500 men signed up, raising in excess of £35,000. This year we have doubled the capacity and hope the men will come out in force not only to raise money for St Luke’s but to show their support for Plymouth Albion. Let’s make it a record home crowd for them!
Emma added: “We know Albion are going through some tough times and would like the club to know we are supporting them all the way. We have been reassured by Albion that our event will go ahead as planned, so please don’t let the recent news delay your registration”.
Duncan Banks, CEO at IU Energy said: “We’re very proud to be powering Men’s Day Out again this year. Last year’s inaugural event was a resounding success so we’re looking forward to raising even more money for St Luke’s this year together with giving Plymouth Albion a significant boost.”
