Charity founder Fiona Devine gave it her best 'try' when she met Windsor's rugby enthusiasts and emerged with £950 towards the children's hospice she has been fighting for.
Fiona and her husband John set up the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service, in memory of their son. She spoke to members of Windsor Rugby Club about the charity's plan for a hospice near Maidenhead when she attended a pre-match lunch on Saturday afternoon.
She was presented with a cheque for the money, a percentage of the proceeds of their summer ball held earlier in the year. It had been organized by James Gowen, the under 14's head coach and Warren Jones, the under 14's team ,anager.
Ian Potter, president of the Windsor Rugby Club who invited Fiona said: “What made the day better still for the club was beating Maidenhead - and the final score was 25-15, exactly the score Fiona wrote down in our 'guess the score' competition."
