AFTER hosting two very different events the Rugby Shree Prajapati Association UK (SPA) has raised £1,300 for two worthy causes.
SPA Rugby hosted its first ever Midland Charity Olympics on December 4 in aid of the Prostate Cancer charity, raising £1,001. The group also organised a religious prayer programme in September attended by SPA members from Rugby and Coventry which raised £301.
Ramesh Mistry of the SPA said: “The charity olympics was an overwhelming success with over 60 competitors from for towns competing in football, badminton, pool and darts events, which were held at the New Warwickshire College and the A1 Club.”
He added: “As a voluntary organisation, one of our main objectives is to help good causes and so we are delighted to have achieved these aims in helping to support two entirely different organisations. We would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported us in these events.”
