Last season Sevenoaks Rugby Club hosted a special day of fundraising for GB Wheelchair Rugby, and inspired by the occasion last season’s Minis and Juniors Tour to Great Yarmouth in May 2018 selected GB Wheelchair Rugby as the nominated Tour Charity.
Thanks to the immense generosity (and the occasional flouting of Tour Rules!) of parents, coaches and players at Sevenoaks Rugby Club, a staggering £3,500 was raised.
This Sunday, 23 September, the Chairman of GBWR Kevin Aitchison (a local Kent lad) along with GB athlete Johnny Coggan, recognised as the best in the world in his classification at the recent World Championships in Sydney, will both be in attendance at the Club to receive the proceeds. The Club looks forward to welcoming them with pride and there will be the chance for all players and parents to meet our special guests.
The Tour fundraising takes the total raised by the Club this year for GB Wheelchair Rugby to more than £10,000, thanks to the fantastic support of all of our members.
