What’s On | Plaster It Purple | Sharks

Round 14 of the BKT United Rugby Championship sees Hollywoodbets Sharks visiting Scotstoun Stadium on Friday 19 April (kick-off 7.35pm) for our annual Plaster It Purple fundraising match day.

This match is all about turning Scotstoun Stadium purple to raise awareness and funds for our official charity partner, the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

A special thanks go to our sponsor Leidos, who we have once again teamed up with to deliver this special fundraising event.

Supporters are encouraged to come along wearing purple on the night. Also, we’re encouraging you to come down early and get involved with the fun activities we have arranged to raise money for our Fighting for our Families campaign, as we continue our journey to raise more than £25,000 for the hospital.

You will be able to donate digitally to the campaign via the QR codes that will be displayed around the stadium. If you have loose change lying around at home don’t forget to bring it along to drop in the charity buckets around the stadium. For the entertainment planned there is no set prices for each activity, but we do encourage you to donate to play!
