New Guide Dog pup named after the founder of rugby William Webb Ellis.
Carlisle RFC and their supporters held their bi-annual sporting dinner and the generosity of those attending and sponsoring the event, allowed them to donate £2.5K to Guide Dogs.
That amount of sponsorship allowed the club to sponsor a pup and choose the name for the dog.
Ellis, a yellow labrador retriever was born as one of a litter of seven pups at the Guide Dogs breeding centre in Warwickshire on 7th December 2014.
His dad is Gus and mum, Unis.
The name Ellis was thought to be an appropriate name in honour of the founder of Rugby Union.
Carlisle RFC would like to thank again to all those who gave so generously to support both Carlisle RFC and Guide Dogs.
Keep an eye on the Carlisle RFC website for updates when they become available.
