The Rugby Football League are delighted to welcome Marie Curie to be part of the action at Dacia Magic Weekend, which takes place on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 at St James’ Park, Newcastle.
The charities’ expert hospice teams work to care for and support patients and their families living with a terminal illness and help them make the most of the time they have together.

Six nurses from the Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle will each lead a Betfred Super League side on to the pitch for all three top-tier fixtures on Saturday, May 19.
Judith Wilson, one of the nurses selected to lead a team out at Dacia Magic Weekend, said: “This is a great opportunity for me to combine my two major passions in life, raising money for Marie Curie, whom I’ve been employed by for the past 23 years in the community as a Senior Health Care Assistant, and rugby! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my Saturday off.”
Volunteers from the charity will also hold a bucket collection on the day around the stadium.
