Many of our supporters will have had their lives touched in some way by the scourge of cancer. That is why the KORT are happy to announce that this banquet will be dedicated to local charity Firefly. Their mission statement - my parentheses:
"Firefly is about life – living it to the full, and enjoying every second of it. We want to remove the stigma and embarrassment of personal cancer problems in young men and women, giving them the confidence to communicate with friends, family and health professionals should the occasion arise.
Founded in 2006 by Denise Dunn after her personal experience with cancer, Firefly help local people in their time of need, making a difficult time a little easier. Firefly is now run by Dee’s fiancé Chewy Bacchus (a former Dragons' player) and close family friend Paul Taylor after Dee passed away in 2014, with a promise to Dee to keep her legacy running.
The Firefly Express vehicles provide free transport to local cancer patients and their families in the borough of Doncaster to regional treatment hospitals, using our fantastic team of volunteer drivers. We currently have a fleet of eight vehicles to cope with the ever-increasing requirements.
Using our personal experiences, we are determined to change the journey for cancer patients while raising awareness, particularly amongst young people, to spot the signs before it advances."
There will still be dining and drinking; there will still be singing and merriment; there will still be the KORT in full dress. Most of all we would hope there will be fans to make it all worthwhile.
We look forward to seeing you before 12.30 on 20th. Don't be late!!!
As you know our final pre-match lunch of the season will take place in the Woodside suite on the 20th April 12.00 for 12.30pm. On this day our Knights do battle against Coventry.
if you haven’t booked your meal ticket, do so by ringing the club on 831388 or calling in at the office. Don’t be confused by the cheaper Easter meal on offer on the same day - it could be infested with children!!
During the season we have raised the finance for our Sponsorship of Sir Rich List and at this forthcoming dinner we will be making a donation, as above post states, to Firefly to reflect the support they have given to one of the KORT.
Finally, do not miss the explanation for the uninitiated of our beloved game of rugby presented in a manner befitting the KORT by Sir Real the Bizarre and his henchman Sir Noel Tilnoon.
Just wanted to say, in my capacity as self-appointed head chorister, the KORT banquet choir has been magnificent all season, but on Saturday it surpassed itself. I was truly flabbergasted by your musicality and the gusto of your singing. You made an old knight very happy. Thank you.
martinc: Enjoy your trip to Jersey lads. COYK! COYK! COYK!

kenner: Just a Question if I may? Why after a season and on to the second can we not get an actual picture of Aaron Carpenter on the players site? Did not someone just take team photos?
Sept 21, 2017 19:35:08 GMT
Sir Spicious: I fear there are rumours that Aaron may, in fact, be a vampire and as such his image does not reflect in mirrors nor can it be captured in a photo. I should, however, warn you this may be fake news.

funches: How come there's only 3 games this weekend? Is it just scheduling or?

thomasmachin: It would appear that if we are to replace the departing players we had better be quick or all the available players will be signed by Ealing ,Coventry and Cornish Pirates!

barbelhunter: What a great re signing that is.

donnyknightsfan: that was absolutely dire today almost from start to finish apart from a spell in the 2nd half when we looked OK. players don't look motivated enough to me. they need a kick up the backside. the next two games v Bedford and Irish look a tough ask now.

rodders: A bit random this one but are any Knights fans travelling to the Jersey game on Friday 1st March flying from East Midlands on the 10.55 flight out. 2 of us are looking for a lift to East Midlands airport unexpectedly. Happy to share costs of travel

donnyknightsfan: after yesterday's showing a new attacking coach and structure is needed ASAP. our attack is really poor. why don't we ever look to create space?. you're not going to beat championship defences by just running straight at them.
