On 9th September 2012 friends, family and the local community gathered to remember Dominic Cullen at a charity rugby match and memorial day.
“On the day we had huge support and raised £5,202.17. The money was raised through a raffle, auction, cake sale, food and kids games with prizes etc. We also had Dominic Cullen memorial wristbands made which we sold. Auction prizes included Rugby tickets, signed rugby shirts and signed balls among other great items. The game wasn’t too serious with a lot of people having played the day before, it was refereed by ex-international referee Chris White and was attended by a few professional rugby players from Gloucester RFC and Worcester with a couple having a little run out (Shaun Knight, George Porter). It was an extremely sad and difficult day for everyone involved however it was quite a humbling experience to know that we were doing something good in memory of a great individual and to see so many people turn up was testament to the type of person he was.
We have also raised £625 recently from a Northern Soul and Motown night held in Dominic’s memory.”
