King’s tickled pink by fundraising
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.
