U14s Charity Fundraiser

By steve bold

Over £1000 Raised for The British Heart Foundation

North Bristol RFC’s Boys U14s team for 2019/20 Season bag packed at Asda Patchway for a day for their Summer Charity Fundraiser on Saturday 6th July. Each year for the past three years the team, coaches and parents have given their time and raised money in a variety of ways.

Two years ago they completed a 24 hour Spinathon in aid of Marie Curie, raising £1000, and then last Summer they walked across the Severn Bridge, visiting Chepstow RFC and stopping for a liquid refreshment before heading back into England. That walk raised £1000 for My Name’5 Doddie, a charity raising money for research into Motor Neurone Disease, inspired by Scottish Rugby International Doddie Weir.

Last weekend the squad raised an incredible £1101.97 bag packing and, with a further £300 raised by raffling a signed Bristol Bears shirt at a recent Coaches Dinner, means £1401.97 will be donated to the British Heart Foundation. This years charity choice was inspired by a child at a local school who has received support from the Foundation and it was great to see Callum and his Mum join the squad on the day.

Head Coach Steve Bold said after the event, “The boys are very lucky with the coaching they receive, the facilities that they can use and the sponsors that they have. So, it is important for the boys to give back to their community and support people less fortunate than themselves and it was great to see them really pulling together as a team on a hot Saturday at Asda Patchway to raise valuable funds for that charity.”
