The Club Together event is to be held in early September 2017, on a quest to visit every rugby club in Norfolk over three days. Ahead of them lies over 320 miles of open roads, during which they will realise Norfolk is not as quite as flat as its reputation suggests!
The event is ‘Club Together’ a rugby themed cycling event intended to achieve three objectives:
- Raise a life-changing amount of money for community based charities.
- Create friendships and foster camaraderie across the rugby community.
- Promote healthy lifestyles and have fun!
The primary charity is Wooden Spoon.
Founded in 1983, the charity harnesses the spirit and values of rugby to positively transform the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children and young people across the UK and Ireland.
In the UK, one child in every hundred suffers from a lifelong disability that will profoundly affect his or her ability to lead a full and happy life.
In addition to this central charity, we have a number of community based charities who will benefit from our fundraising. Each participating rugby club will have the opportunity to nominate a charity. We intend to raise money via personal and corporate sponsorship (via on-line charity donation) and hold fundraising events throughout 2017.
