TOP rugby union club Harlequins has teamed up with the military charity Tickets For Troops (www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk) to offer THIRTY tickets for every home fixture for members of Britain’s Armed Forces.
The club’s home at The Stoop in Twickenham has played host to thousands of troops and Chris Robshaw has personally supported the recovery and rehabilitation centre at Headley Court near Leatherhead as well as donating his Quins and England kits for auction. The club also allocated free tickets for their annual Big Game at Twickenham.
Jim Eyre, Commercial Operations Director at Harlequins commented: “We are delighted to be able to recognise the sacrifice and efforts that the men and women from our Armed Forces make in helping to keep us safe and Tickets For Troops is the perfect way to do this.”
A spokesperson for Tickets For Troops said: “Rugby is massively popular with the Armed Forces and the support of Harlequins is really appreciated as it gives rugby fans a great opportunity to see first class rugby regularly.”
Tickets For Troops was set up by the Prime Minister David Cameron in 2009 and has donated over 830,000 FREE tickets to the Armed Forces for major events ranging from the Olympics, the Rugby World Cup, tennis, Premier League Football and major comedy and concerts events.
Tickets are available for current serving members of the Armed Forces and those who have been medically discharged since 2001. Individuals can apply for tickets online at www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk
