Refs raise over £1000 ‘Doing The Rounds’

North Mids Referees and father-son duo Julian and Theo Edwards last month completed their marathon cycle ride between all the North Midlands RFU clubs, raising over £1000 for two rugby charities in the process. Both the RFU’s Injured Player Fund and the Matt Hampson Foundation provide rehab, living assistance and education services to sportspeople of all ages and levels who’ve had life changing injuries as a result of playing sport.

The ride took Julian & Theo all over the region, covering 61 clubs and more than 350 miles. Theo kicked a goal at every club (apart from 4), and at many clubs they were welcomed with food, drink and a collecting bucket!

You can find out more about the ride and the clubs visited on www.refsdotherounds.wordpress.com or on their very own Facebook page www.facebook.com/refsdotherounds

The pair’s JustGiving pages remain open for the next few days for any last minute donations, and will close on 18th September.
