Riley started Rugbytots a few weeks back and today he is doing a sponsored Try-athon, the children are taking part in three main activities, non-stop for a period of 5 min’s each. The challenge is to complete as many as possible in the time allowed. There is a small prize and certificate for every child who takes part.
A class total of the activities will be added at the end and the winning class in the area will all receive a Rugbytots bear. In addition to this, prizes will be allocated for top National fundraisers as follows:
1st Prize – 5 tickets to Rugby Premiership Final 2016 plus over-night accommodation
2nd Prize – 5 tickets for a family day at Chessington world of adventures
3rd Prize - 2 tickets to a premiership game of choice (depending on availability)
The Charity they are fundraising for is called Wooden Spoon. Here is some more information on the charity I have found...
"Wooden Spoon was found in 1983 and has since then been making a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. It is one of the largest funders of respite and medical treatment centres, sensory enhancement therapeutic facilities, specialist playgrounds, sport activity areas and community based programmes in the UK. To date they’ve granted over £20 million to fantastic projects. All the money raised in each local area stays within the local area and therefore people can really see the difference that their fundraising is making. Our aim is to increase awareness of this fantastic charity and increase funding for their incredible work. Wooden Spoon is Inspired and motivated by rugby heritage and by working together with the rugby community, with the support of its top sporting heroes, Spoon have been able to help over 1 million children and fund over 600 projects."
