The Impact Charity Rugby Team each year recruit around 30 recruit rugby novices and non active players to take part in a physically demanding 10 week training program to learn the game of rugby, get fit and raise money for charity. The program comes to end with a huge match day event in August which is watched by over 1000 friends, family and supporters.
This year has seen the program grow even bigger with coverage and support from ITV's Primetime Suprise Suprise TV show, Bristol Evening Post, Jack FM, England Rugby, Ben Cohen and current England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster.
We are raising the bar this year and with the support of The Bristol Barbarians Rugby Club, Trojan Gym and others. This year we are looking to raise £20,000 for these two great charities.
In addition to the lads putting their bodies through the pain barrier for 10 weeks they will also be taking part in hospice visits and family visits, sponsored runs, bucket collections, super market bag packing, raffle ticket sales the list goes on.
