Home> News> Agricultural Xv Take On Wensleydale Rufc To Raise Funds For Macmillan Cancer Support
AGRICULTURAL XV TAKE ON WENSLEYDALE RUFC TO RAISE FUNDS FOR MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT


 

 

GSC Grays in conjunction with Genus and alongside members of the local farming community took place on Wensleydale RUFC last week, in a pre-season friendly, in a bid to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.  The evening was a great success topped off by the fact the Agricultural XV took the match 37 points to 22.  The Agricultural XV put on an excellent performance on the evening with Rob Bellerby, a dairy farmer from near Stokesley, putting in the man of the match performance, scoring four tries.

 Macmillan Cancer Support match

The seed of an idea for the match came from Colin Lucas of Genus, who has himself recently successfully recovered from cancer and was keen to add his support to the hard work and dedication shown by the Macmillan Cancer Support team.  Colin, who himself played flyhalf on the evening added: “   I wanted to put a bit back to the Macmillan guys after they looked after me so well, all be it only for a small time. My friends, Farming Clients & Colleagues at Genus have really got into the spirit of things and we could probably have put two teams out tonight. We just need to keep our un beaten record when we play Driffield in March! To have raised over £500 on the night is tremendous.

 

Colin added that to date the event has raised in excess of £1,912.20 for Macmillan Cancer Support from sponsorship of the event and funds raised on the evening.  For those who were unable to attend or would like to give a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support please visit: https://www.justgiving.com/Colinlucas
