The line-out strength of Bob Penberthy played a great part in Ponty's success during the 1970s and 1980s and he was a formidable opponent. Bob gained immense respect, both on and off the field, when he played for Pontypridd.
David Power, Honorary Secretary of the Welsh Charitables RFC, said: "There will be a number of former greats from the 60s up to the present day turning out to support Bob and his wife on this special occasion. This includes legends such as Clive Rowlands, John Dawes, David Watkins, Barry John, JPR Williams, Dai Morris, Steve Fenwick, the Pontypool front row, Mervyn Davies, John Perkins and Ponty's own Russell Robins, Neil Jenkins and Tom David - so a great night should be had by all."
Through the medium of rugby the Welsh Charitables RFC raise funds for a number of worthy charities throughout the Principality namely: Ty Hafan the Children's Hospice in Wales; St Anne's Hospice; St David's Foundation Hospice Care; WREX (The Welsh Rugby Former International Players Association) and The Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust (a trust for players at all levels seriously injured whilst playing the sport).
All proceeds from the dinner will go to the Welsh Charitables "We Want A Million Appeal" to set up a trust fund for the above charities.
Seats for the dinner, on the evening before the Wales v Italy RBS Six Nations international, are £45.00 each or £450.00 (per table of 10) inclusive of a six course meal. For more details contact David Power, Hon Secretary Welsh Charitables RFC, on 01633 864 938 or 07973 705 062.
