- ‘Round’ 16: We did it!So after 3 months, 350+ miles, 3000 sandwiches and bottles of lucozade (slight exaggeration), we’ve reached the finish line and raised over £1000 into the bargain! First stop on the Final Round was one ofContinue reading “‘Round’ 16: We did it!”

What’s it all about?
We plan to cycle between every North Midlands RFU affiliated club ground, plus some extra clubs served by our referees Society, before 1st September 2020.
Our aim is to raise at least £1000 split between two key rugby charities: the RFU’s own Injured Player Fund, and the Matt Hampson Foundation. Both these charities are vital organisations in the support of amateur rugby players who have experienced life-changing injuries.
We’re acutely aware there isn’t much spare cash around at the moment, so anything that you can give is hugely appreciated, small or large. For example, if just 300 people donate the price of a pint, we’ll be there in no time!
Thank you so much, we look forward to keeping you updated
