Young rugby players really pack a punch
8:22am Wednesday 21st December 2011 in Fundraising fun
THE Heworth Under 14s Rugby League Team have been helping Christmas shoppers in a bid to raise money for their team.
The rugby league team came out in force earlier this month at the Sainsbury’s supermarket at Monk’s Cross to raise money for the club’s funds through packing the bags of busy shoppers.
The team has 17 members who all need new playing kits.
The team’s coach Ken Embleton said: “The lads wanted to get together and raise their own money through helping busy shoppers out in the run-up to Christmas.”
He said: “I think it’s a great idea because if they can see what it takes to raise the money for the uniforms it gives them a sense of responsibility over the clubs’ resources.”
The club has raised £600 so far and intends to continue their fundraising with the help of Sainsbury’s in the new year.
