WARRINGTON Wizards will be holding a Bikini Car Wash tomorrow, Saturday (April 14) to raise
funds to send one of their players to represent their country.
Troy Brophy has been selected to represent BARLA Great Britain under 23s
when they tour Jamaica in June.
Each player on the tour has to pay for the costs themselves and
the Wizards have pulled together to try and send Troy off with a series of
fundraising events starting with the Car Wash.
Several members of the Wizards’ squad will be dressed in bikinis outside
McDonalds on Winwick Road in Warrington.
Troy said: “The idea came about when the weather was really good a couple
of weeks ago, and we thought it would be good to do if the weather held. Even
though we haven’t had the good weather lately, we’re still planning to go ahead
with it anyway."
The cost of sending each player to Jamaica is £2,000, and there will be
more fundraising events to be announced in future. They aim to raise over £250
from the car wash and customers will be asked to donate £5 for each car
The car wash will start from 9.30am until 3pm and
this will be a perfect opportunity to see your Warrington Wizards as you have
never seen them before.
Troy said: “I’ve told everyone to get their own bikinis, and I have bought
a bright pink one. I might even wear a blonde wig to go with it!”
