The Welsh Charitables RFC are organising a Charity “Dinner with a Legend” featuring guest of honour Jim Mills, at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff on Friday 9thJune 2017.

Through the medium of rugby, the Welsh Charitables RFC raise funds for a number of worthy charities, namely St Anne’s Hospice, WREX (Welsh Rugby Former International Players Association), Ty-Hafan – the family hospice for young lives, The Princes Trust Cymru and St David’s Foundation Hospice Care.

They are all very proud to support these worthwhile causes and sportsmen’s dinners like these contribute to their fundraising.

The guest of honour on Friday 9th June, Jim Mills, is one of Welsh rugby’s biggest names. With 17 Welsh caps and six from Great Britain, he was a regular on the international Rugby League circuit for 10 years. He later became the Wales team manager.

As a player, he helped Wales to an infamous 12-7 win over England on June 10th 1975, an infamous World Cup match that became known as “The Battle of Brisbane” and his red card for stamping against New Zealand in Wales’ 25-24 win later in the competition (the last time any Wales rugby side has beaten New Zealand) led him to be temporarily banned from entering the land of the long white cloud.

At club level, he played union for Cardiff and league for Halifax, Salford, Bradford Northern, North Sydney, Widnes and Workington.

The evening at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff on Friday 9th June 2017, starts at 6.30pm to sit down at 7.15pm. Dress: Lounge Suit or Blazer & Greys.

Seats are priced at £55 each, or a table of ten for £550. This includes a five course meal with coffee and mints and a free drinks reception.

Tickets are available now. All enquiries and purchases are to go through David CG Power, the honorary secretary of WCRFC. Tel: 07973705062 or e-mail:

Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
