Chester Rugby Club has teamed up with Legends Rugby, Sale Sharks RFC and Dee 106.3 FM to bring together a fantastic family fun day combined with a Legends Rugby match.
The day begins with a coaching session for junior players from Chester, Mold and Halifax, hosted by players and staff from Sale Sharks.
Starting at 3:00pm, former Internationals including Sale Legends Phil Greening, Steve Hanley, Nicky Little and Gavin Kerr will line-up alongside England, Fiji and Scotland Legends, to take on a team of Chester Legends, led by former first XV captain Andy McAdam.
It will be covered by Dee 106.3 FM to help drive maximum awareness of the Babygrow Appeal, Backford Hospice and the continuing development of community rugby in Chester.
Chester Club Chairman, Johnny Beckwith said, "Whilst we are hugely passionate about rugby at this club, we are also committed to supporting the community. We coach over 450 children every week at Chester RUFC and to be in a position where we can help charities by doing what we love is a great source of pride for everyone connected with the club."
Adds Legends Rugby Tournament Director Ian Dawson: "We're thrilled to be supporting Chester RFC and their charity partners to deliver a great day of rugby and family fun. Through Legends Rugby we are committed to sharing the spirit of the game with a wider audience."
A real family day of activities off the rugby pitch will include a climbing wall, bouncy castle as well as a guest appearance from Sale Sharks Mascot, Sharky.

Despite trailing by three points at the interval, Sale Sharks European Cup campaign ended at Thomond Park to a Munster side who were desperate to finish on a winning note after failing to qualify for the Quarter Finals.
Sale Sharks' European campaign this season has been a case of what might have been but back-row forward Mark Easter insists he and his teammates can hold their heads high even if it ends without a win.
Danny Cipriani has been called up to the England EPS Squad ahead of this season's Six Nations, and Ross Harrison has been called up for the England Saxons squad for their match against Irish Wolfhounds on Friday 30th January.
Steve Diamond has admitted that the experience of this season's European Rugby Champions Cup has made him and his squad even more determined to finish in the Top Six of the Aviva Premiership and so book their passage into next season's European showpiece.
Sharks were left empty handed after a tremendous effort against Clermont Auvergne in appalling conditions at the AJ Bell Stadium. So close but yet so far in the home games in the competition with Steve Diamond's men running Munster,Saracens and Clermont right to the bell on each game.
