Players from the international community came together for this charity fundraiser rugby match.

Over 30 diplomats and players from the international community came together for this charity fundraiser, with four mixed teams playing a gruelling total of six games in the warm evening heat.

Debbie Palmer, representing the British High Commission, said:

It was great to see such a turnout at the event and for the British High Commission to be hosting such a popular event. We’re very grateful to Marriott Islamabad for supporting the tournament in aid of such a worthy cause.

With lots of healthy appetites following such an intense competition, the event ended fittingly with a BBQ nearby.
