  • (1888PressRelease) April 21, 2011 - James Kelly from wealth management and financial services provider, Welbeck Group, is helping organise a rugby match to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

    On Saturday 7 May, 12.30pm at Richmond College, members of the 7 Paras RHA will face an Invitational International team of ex-professional players. After the match, the crowd and players will cross the road to watch the legendary annual Army v Navy fixture at Twickenham, which kicks off at 3pm.

    "We've held matches before the Army v Navy game for the past five years," said James. "The sides comprise ex-professional international rugby players and military personnel. The Paras are returning from a six-month tour of Afghanistan, so it will be great homecoming match for them."

    An ex-professional rugby player and soldier himself, James confirmed the match is in memory of a much-missed member of the armed forces: "The match pays tribute to Adrian Powell, who died on a military exercise in Kenya in 2001. Adi was an exceptional soldier and rugby player - when he passed away, it was a tragic loss to everyone who knew him."

    This year, the match will raise money for the British Heart Foundation. As James explained, the choice of charity was inspired by a dramatic post-match incident the previous year. "One of our players, Dale Jefferies, suffered a heart attack straight after the game. Fortunately, he's fit and well, and playing again this year!"

    The 12.30pm fixture at Richmond College will also play host to beer and food tents. "Everything's available in the grounds, so there's no need to queue for food and drink at local pubs," said James. "Following the match, we're moving on to the Army v Navy match at Twickenham. So it promises to be a fantastic day."

    Tickets for the Army v Navy match can be purchased at www.armynavymatch.org. To find out more about this and the Adi Powell Memorial Rugby Match, email James at james.kelly ( @ ) welbeckgroup dot co dot uk
