WHEN the boys of Culcheth Eagles Under 13 Golds rugby team got back to training after lockdown they decided to help charity as well.
They decided to do a 100-mile sponsored cycle ride during May to raise much-needed funds for Prostate Cancer UK which, like many charities, has been hit hard by the pandemic.
Coach Mick Hodgkiss said: “The boys could have raised money for the team for exciting events during 2021 after a no start 2020 season, but they decided to kick off the season by giving to charity instead.
“It’ll be a great event for our kids to do, they all have amazing hearts and are always ready to undertake challenges on and off the pitch. They like raising money for the team, but they love it when they raise money for charities.”
The U13 Golds have done a similar cycling fundraising event in the past to raise money for their team manager who was undergoing cancer treatment.
They have also organised coffee mornings for Macmillan and donating kits to Africa.
