Stafford RFC - Charity Cycle Ride

Back in March this year I wrote to all Staffordshire clubs to tell them Stafford Rugby Club are completing a charity cycle ride between Friday 19th July - Sunday 21st July 2019 when they will attempt to visit all rugby clubs within Staffordshire, a distance of 278 miles to raise funds on behalf of The Kidney Unit, North Staffordshire University Hospital.

Over 30 cyclist’s male and female are participating and a copy of their route which starts and finishes at our current premises on each day, is attached. It is proposed they will visit each club as close to the estimated time of arrival time on whichever day, take a short break including a photograph with a club official to confirm their visit and, then move on.

At some clubs, they will take their refreshments and may require a cold drink or light snack to be provided by the club. If necessary, any costs will be paid for by the cyclist.

Any member of a club, over 18 years of age who wishes to join the ride between clubs may do so but must have a well-maintained cycle and wear appropriate clothing including a cycle helmet.

The Kidney Unit being supported by the club is the only one of its kind in the area and treats parents from all over the county.

May I please request you bring the club’s effort to your committee’s notice for them to consider supporting it in some way. If you have any queries, please contact me on 07960708565 or via david.ainge1@hotmail.com

Thank you for your assistance and consideration.

Best regards

David Ainge - President Stafford RFC
