Macclesfield Express - - JOBS -

THE King’s School’s rugby com­mu­nity donned pink for Can­cer Re­search as they proved the hard men of sport also have a softer, com­pas­sion­ate side.

The boys were joined by young women ath­letes from King’s Girls’ Di­vi­sion for a char­ity touch rugby marathon which also had a sport­ing out­come.

King’s Head of Rugby Guy Ma­son ex­plained: “Dur­ing the sum­mer break we like to keep up our skill lev­els by play­ing non con­tact rugby and it has be­come a tra­di­tion that we raise money for good causes at the same time.

“In the first week all 70 play­ers wore hats and caps while play­ing which was to raise money for the Brain Tu­mour Trust.

“This week we are in pink and next week play­ers will have to wear shirts from com­mon­wealth of rugby na­tions, and that will raise money for The Christie Hos­pi­tal.”

The King’s rugby depart­ment aim to do­nate more than £300.
