    Mansfield Rugby Club is a strictly amateur community club, and for many of us, it is a place that is close to our heart. As a result of the pandemic, we have been closed since March with no income from our usual activities. However, costs in maintaining the clubhouse and grounds do not stop. We firmly believe that people are happy to help those who are prepared to help themselves. Which is why we have launched a club-wide fundraising campaign to ensure our short to medium term future comprising of a series of physical challenges. It’s a real club effort with members involved from every team across our seniors and juniors, men’s and women’s as well as non-playing administrators.

    We are staging a series of challenges and events called the Mansfield Rugby Club 30 Day Challenge, which runs from the 1st to 30th July. The range of events are shown below, and you can see that there is a wide variety of activities that will test us all in terms of strength, stamina, resolve and in some cases, skill. You will be able to keep up with the progress of all the challenges on our club Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.

    This is the list of challenges being undertaken by club members over the 30 days:

    Pete Steffen - 1000km bike ride in 30 days

    Daz Topliss - 24 hours spinning bike challenge

    Kev Geary & Lauren Hartshorn - 200km run in 30 days

    MRUFC Women's and Girls - 30 mile walk to Clumber Park and back

      It's over! What an incredible campaign we've had. We set out to raise £15,000 for our club and the support we had was such that we had to revise our target to £18,000. Now as we close down the campaign we have crossed over £20,000! This is just staggering and we cannot thank you all enough, this means so much to so many people - thank you!

      With two days to go we've done it! With your help we have reached our revised target of £18,000. There are still a couple of days left and a few challenges to finish but we have got there. From our initial target of £15,000 we revised it to £18,000 as we had so much left to do, and for us to beat that target too is phenomenal! Our support has been unbelievable and we thank you all!

      Well, no sooner had I written the last message when, boom! We did it!! We have reached our target. We cannot thank you all enough for the brilliant support and generous donations you have given us. We still have much more to do though and many more challenges to complete ... and we still have over a week to go. Therefore, we have revised our target to a new level for those who wish to support our teams who have still yet to complete their challenge. Let's get behind them and thank you all again.
