By Dave Picken - May 20 2019
Big Turn Out For Boatman Charity Game More than £4,000 was raised as Hartlepool rugby once again supported the annual Boatman Charity Game in memory of Jonny's daughter Imogen-Rose and Martin Boatman who lost his fight with cancer earlier this year .

The game, which saw West take on a Hartlepool Select XV representing every club in the town was competitive and entertaining. It was won by West with both Jonny and Danny crossing in the second half - unfortunately eldest brother Lee fluffed his chance.

The money raised goes to two charities this year with the organisers of both on hand to give moving testimonies of how they came to be formed.

The 4 Louis Charity gave great suppport to Jonny and Donna when they lost baby Imogen-Rose, and they will able to provide hospitals with  memory boxes and cold cots with the proceeds.

The Dragonfly Cancer Trust helps people under the age of 25 who have cancer and was chosen as Martin worked with young people both as a teacher and his award winning contribution to British Olympic sailing and girls' sailing in particular.

This was a showcase of WHRFC and Hartlepool in general at its very finest.
Old friends, young babies, and lots of great memories.
