More 'Stoke support for Ark

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is proud to be the 2016-17 charity of the year of Basingstoke RFC President Dr Steve Tristram - and the club members and supporters continue to deliver great support to the good cause.

Last month, generous members and guests at the club's Burns' Lunch, which was sponsored by Basingstoke Audi, raised £700 which will be donated to the charity - and the even better news is that the sum will be doubled as it is being paid into The Good Exchange portal which is supported by Greenham Common Trust match-funding.
