Volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes will be honoured at the Eastern Counties Rugby Union annual dinner at The Atheneum, Bury St Edmunds on Friday, June 5, where the guest speaker will be former England international Rob Andrew.
Clubs within the Eastern Counties were invited to put forward nominations for EC President’s Awards. Two local heroes were nominated for Exceptional Volunteer: John Lingwood, Fakenham; and Gerry Ellis, West Norfolk.
The dinner will also celebrate the success of a dozen teams in the EC area winning their respective divisions, each being presented with a shield. This includes Swaffham in EC 4N.
