All Schools Students and Volunteers take to the pitch

Before the Legends took to the pitch, girls from the local schools Twickenham Academy were given a special opportunity to play rugby on pitch with the support of CBRE Volunteers. The girls were joined by 2014 RWC Winner, Maggie Alphonsi.
“It was fantastic to see the girls from Twickenham Academy out on the Harlequins pitch enjoying the game. CBRE’s support of All Schools and women in sport is forward thinking in understanding the need for supporting different people from different backgrounds – something I relate to personally. It is so important we do all we can to encourage people to take part in sport. Rugby changed my life and that is why I’m so passionate to share my experience and support for All Schools to inspire the next generation.” Maggie Alphonsi

CBRE Volunteers were also given the opportunity to win a shirt signed by all the England Legends in a half-time Cross Bar Challenge. Nick Patterson, Michael Whitney and George Stilgoe gave it their all, with Nick coming in very close.
