Wooden Spoon Charity Event

Wooden Spoon is coordinating 2 events in the coming months aimed

1) specifically at the Rugby family

2) to not only support the charity but also to significantly assist rugby clubs financially, following the difficult period of lockdown

3) to be fun or challenging whatever suits you and your fellow members/friends best

Wooden Spoon have, for this year only, formally agreed across Rugby that sponsorship funds raised by (Anchs) rugby members for either events will be split 75% for the Clubs and 25% for the charity to recognise & alleviate the difficulties caused to Community Rugby by COVID 19

Please try to play your part!

Event 1 – a 600km/375 mile circuit connecting all rugby clubs in Kent to be “virtually” covered anytime between 1/04/2021 and 30/06/2021.

The distance can be covered by cycling (either on the road or in the gym/home cycling/spinning machine)using the Strava link set up by Wooden Spoon; or running, walking or swimming (keeping your own records) – and can be achieved by daily, weekly monthly exercises. There are no limits or restrictions other than start and end dates.

Individuals register (£10 – this goes Wooden Spoon directly) and then get started. You could put yourselves up against/or join fellow members, training colleagues and friends to introduce a bit of competition throughout the 3 months?

Event 2

A specific bike/road sponsored cycle ride on Sunday 4th July 2021.

There will be the option of a 155 km (nearly 100mile) ride visiting 11 mid-Kent rugby Clubs en route, or a shorter 50km (just above 30 mile) ride visiting only local Clubs so that a more leisurely pace can be enjoyed on the day!

There will be an entry fee of £40 per rider (to predominantly cover the cost of a Wooden Spoon cycle jersey) and an aim of a £100 sponsorship per rider.

Numbers from Anchs for either of of the actual bike rides need to be confirmed by Sunday 25th April (due to riding top orders)

Full details can be found on the Wooden Spoon website <clubtogetherkent> or alternatively if anyone would welcome additional information before making a commitment, please just contact me directly
