The North Derbyshire Chargers RLFC have launched a project in collaboration with Heartbeat of Sport to provide cardiovascular screening, dietary advice and provide opportunities for social exercise via their Play Touch Rugby League – Warsop Vale franchise.
A Facebook page has been launched at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cardiovascular-Health-and-Screening-Programme/1506883739528695 or further information is available via the embedded link at the bottom of this page.
Please share as much as you can and encourage people to support this so that we can arrange to screen players from local community clubs across all sports plus members of the wider community.
Five years ago the North Derbyshire Chargers’ Open Age team took on the Wolds Cavemen in a couple of friendly fixtures. Last month, we were contacted to see if we could be interesting in doing it all again and given we no longer have an Open Age team I suggested we put together a Barbarian style squad to allow the fixture to go ahead.
In light of today’s tragic news regarding Danny Jones we would like to suggest that the fixtures are used to raise money for Danny’s family and the Heartbeat of Sport charity who do a great deal of work in the field of sudden cardiac arrest.
Likely dates are currently being discussed and will be posted here and on the club’s Facebook page as soon as details are known. Please get in touch if you would be interested in playing in the fixture and/or if you would be willing to sponsor the event.
We were initially thinking of the following fund raising opportunities for businesses or individuals:
* individual player sponsorship
* match programme with sponsorship opportunities
* sponsorship forms for number of tries scored
* bucket collection at the events (home and away)
All money raised will be donated to Danny’s family via the Keighley Cougars and the Heartbeat of Sport charity.
