MKRUFC Summer Fundraiser: London to Paris Bike Ride
We’re proud to be supporting a brave team of MKRUFC faithful who are embarking on a sponsored bike ride from London to Paris (taking in both National Rugby Stadia : Twickenham and Stade de France). Our very own Gary Spinks will be leading the 250 mile trip over the May Bank Holiday along with a few pressed men. Donning their Lycra, digging out their bicycles and clearing out stock of all numbing cream, and aiming to raise a total of £20,000 for the MKRUFC charity.
This is a remarkable opportunity and a remarkable effort for the club and they need all of the support they can get. We are proud to be sponsoring their trip but that’s not enough – Gary and his team are appealing for sponsors to follow the link below and make a small donation to MKRUFC funds, to help cover the cost of painting their clubhouse this summer.
Please donate whatever you can spare to help them reach their goal and to support the courageous (possibly mad!) men and their mission to cycle from London to Paris.
Gary urges people to help in any way they can, stating that “Should we achieve 1,000 donations of any size and also collect £10,000, a number of corporate donors will match those funds and turn the total to £20,000.” The opportunity for greater funds for their beloved project is clear and every donation, big or small will be received with immense gratitude.
If you’re able to donate, please follow these simple instructions:
- Go to www.localgiving.com
- Type in Rugby in the search field (top centre of page), and then MKRUFC will appear in a small drop down menu. Click on MKRUFC . This takes you to our page.
- Click on ‘appeal’ (in small letters, just to right Blue Box ‘about’). This takes you to the ‘Ring of Fire Bike Appeal’.
- Select your donation or adjust the value to make a donation of another multiple. Fill in the details as required. (Note: if you are already a member of Local Giving you can simply bypass some of the info required)
- Please remember to tick the Gift Aid Box (this can increase your donation by 25%)
Every donation of any size is greatly appreciated. As always, the team thank all in advance for your support of their Rugby Club. All funds will go directly to the club. Let’s all dig deep and help Gary and his team achieve the success they deserve for embarking on such an impressive trip.
