Harlequins is delighted to confirm today (Wednesday 19th November) that Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity will be the official charity partner of Big Game 7 when Harlequins play Northampton Saints at Twickenham Stadium on December 27th, kick-off 16:30.
Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, which was the beneficiary charity for Big Game 5 in 2012, will partner Harlequins for the annual festive fixture once again and will have its logo present on the back of the charity shirt.
The shirt, which is slowly being revealed through the club’s social media channels, will be available for pre-order on Thursday 20th November and £5 from every shirt sale will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, treating patients from across the UK, often for rare and complex conditions. The charity raises vital funds to help rebuild and refurbish the hospital, provide vital up-to-date equipment and fund research into better treatments for the children.
Commenting on the announcement, Harlequins Head of Community and Foundation Leanne Dingle said: "We at Harlequins are very proud to partner with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity again for Big Game 7. Harlequins work with over 7,000 children within our local and wider community, so to link with a children’s based charity is very important to us. We’ve been really inspired by the hospital’s incredible work and we are very excited to be working with the charity to support a great cause during the festive period."
Olivia Jary, Head of Business Development from Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, said: "We’re thrilled to be working with Harlequins again this year for Big Game 7. All the money raised will help us make a real difference for the hospital’s young patients and their families."
Harlequins Big Game is more than just a rugby match; it is an exciting and affordable festive family day out. With stunning pyrotechnic displays, musical entertainment acts and much more, this year’s Big Game is not to be missed.
