24 hours Fundraising Challenge, 7 - 8 October

Huge congratulations to our inspiring teens who raised over £2,700!

Our Youth Group took on 24 hours of fundraising for Birmingham's Children's Hospital in memory of their friend Ollie. Starting at 7pm on Friday after a full day at school, they took on all sorts of challenges to raise money for the Hospital. They played badminton and football; they tested many of Rugby's chip shops; they had a beauty hour in the wee, small hours; they shopped in our local supermarket and cooked breakfast for all comers; they baked and they swam and finally cycled and walked round Draycote before enjoying a well deserved barbeque in the Country Park. You are all amazing!

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Group in any way.
