The raffle, organised by New Zealand native Rikki Flutey, was held at Adams Park last weekend when London Wasps got back to winning ways with a victory over Sale. Pete, from Cambridgeshire, was delighted with the prize and the raffle helped to raise over £1,000.
Members of the London Wasps Supporters club gave up their time to sell raffle tickets at the game against Sale Sharks. Wasps FC are also aiming to raise money for the same purposes this weekend.
This coming Saturday, after their home matches at Twyford Avenue, Wasps FC and London New Zealand RFC will be holding a joint fundraising event, in aid of the appeal.
Lighting specialists will be turning the bar red and black, in honour of the people of Canterbury, and London Wasps players will be donating old items of kit to be sold to FC members, with all profits going to the earthquake fund.
In the meantime, a book of condolence has been opened, in New Zealand House, in central London. It is located in the foyer of the building, in Haymarket, and will remain there until next Friday, the 11th, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., weekdays only.
