Close to 200 people packed Pakuranga United Rugby Club on Friday for its annual luncheon and auction.

More than $30,000 was raised on the day for the club’s shade sail project and the junior player support fund.

Guest speaker was Radio Sport personality Martin Devlin and MC was ‘Crackers’.
PURC general manager Stephen Hackett said: “We are so humbled by the level of support shown by the community once again at our annual luncheon. 2020 has been really tough year for sports clubs so to have this level of support really heartens us for what the future looks like.”
