For eight years now, girls from Oundle School’s Sixth Form have joined together to play a game of rugby in memory of former pupil, Thommy Purbrook.

Thommy’s career at Oundle was tragically cut short when she died from meningitis whilst on a School trip to St Petersburg in December 2008.

Thommy’s time at Oundle was marked by her enthusiasm, energy and determination and one of her many talents was rugby – she was Captain of the Girls’ Rugby team.

The money raised this year will go to Meningitis Now. This year’s match took place on March 20 and has so far raised £4,100.
