Story

Andrea Hinton was our much beloved friend, player and past Ladies XV Captain who died suddenly and unexpectedly in February 2009, having being diagnosed with leukemia only hours beforehand.

After the success of our first Andrea Hinton Memorial Day back in February 2010, the ladies and their friends have continued to raise money for Andrea's chosen charity Breast Cancer Care. A charity which Andrea was so passionate about and regularly took part in events for.

The Rugby 7s team 'Andrea's Angels' have continued to play ever since combining players from the Sutton and Epsom Ladies XV, friends of Andrea and friends of friends who all want to take part in a sport that Andrea loved.

We have continued to fundraise for Breast Cancer Care and completed several events including a 5k swim, running events, raffle and quizzes. We appreciate every penny donated towards our past and future projects and events.

Our latest event is the Spartan Sprint Obstacle Course on 1 October 2016, a grueling obstacle challenge involving mud, fire, walls, barbed wire and plenty more obstacles to test our perseverance and determination.

Please sponsor us with anything you can afford to give, so we can continue to support this cause.

Love and hugs

The Andrea's Angels team and supporters
