Charities benefit from Zurich hat-tricks

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

At the start of the season, Zurich pledged that every hat-trick would mean a £500 donation to five well-known rugby charities – The Andy Blyth Benefit Trust, The Wooden Spoon Society, The Richard Langhorn Trust, The Jarrod Cunningham Fund and the Wavell Wakefield Youth Sports Trust.

Marcel Garvey of Gloucester, Brendon Daniel of Bristol Shoguns, James Forrester of Gloucester and Simon Shaw of London Wasps all scored hat-tricks, prompting a £2,000 donation to each of the five charities.

In addition, Steve Hanley won the Premiership Top try-scorer Award, enabling the Sale Sharks winger to donate £3,000 to the charity of his choice.

The England international plumped for two local charities, splitting the donation between the Children's Adventure Farm and the Francis House Appeal.
