Coronavirus: Rugby club’s £3,000 target for Kings Mill Hospital

Posted onPosted on 1st Apr

Mansfield Rugby Club is aiming to raise £3,000 to “support the heroes of our NHS and specifically those who work at our own local King’s Mill Hospital.”

Members have come up with two ways to back the Sutton hospital and its staff as well as help their own club.

Several players from the club are shaving their heads to encourage donations, which will allow them to buy all the current stock of drinks and snacks at the club “that are just gathering dust whilst the club is closed.”

This comprises hundreds of cans and bottles of drinks, ranging from Coke and Diet Coke to Fanta and water plus Lucozade, Red Bull and various snacks. Every item purchased will then be donated to the staff at King’s Mill Hospital.

The club said: “Mansfield Rugby Club is a not-for-profit community club itself and in desperate need of funds to keep it going through this difficult time. By members buying as much stock as possible whilst the club cannot trade, their club will benefit by selling stock and raising much-needed funds and the staff at King’s Mill will benefit from having all the items purchased on their behalf presented to them.

“Plus, some rugby lads will get to improve their looks by shaving their heads!”
