Refs do the Rounds

YMO Theo and dad Julian (also a North Mids referee), spent the summer of 2020 cycling between all of the 61 grounds served by the North Mids RFU and Referees’ Society, to raise money for two very important rugby charities, the RFU’s own Injured Players Foundation, and the Matt Hampson Foundation

At every ground Theo (a keen full back as well as a young whistler) kicked a goal, and they took a photo to prove they’d been there.

The ride started at Woodrush in May, and over 350 miles later finished at the Region’s Premiership team, Worcester Warriors on 23 August. The duo raised over £1100 for their charities, and improved their fitness in preparation for the 20-21 season into the bargain!
