Wharfedale RUFC – Bike Ride from Peterborough for YAA – Bike for Blades and Balls

April 18th, 2019 Comments off

From 25-27 April, six of our members will be cycling from Peterborough Lions RUFC to Wharfedale to raise money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance as a thank you for their role in rescuing Michael Harrison after his accident last year and, more recently, ensuring that young Jack Midgley was transferred swiftly to LGI after being badly injured in an under 14 match. Half the money raised will be given directly to YAA and half retained by the club to buy YAA branded match balls and other merchandise which will be used throughout the 2019/20 season to promote YAA as a constant reminder of the fantastic service which YAA provides to our rural community.

The riders are Matthew Bell, Robert Fort, Nick Gains, Alex Howarth, Tim Lockett and Dave Townson, supported by Michael Townson. They will also be joined by a friend of Tim’s from London, Alan Jackson. The group will arrive at the ground on Saturday 27 April in time for kick-off on our last 1st XV game of the season.

It costs £6,000 to keep a YAA helicopter in the air for a day; match balls cost around £40 each – and we get through a lot of them! – so we would like to encourage all members and supporters to dig deep to support this fund-raising effort. To donate online please go to Remember – £40 will buy one YAA match ball or keep a YAA helicopter in the air for 5 minutes; £100 will keep a YAA helicopter in the air for 12 minutes – the average flight time for a single incident.

Many thanks

Robert Fort – Chairman

Rob Baldwin – Director of Rugby
