Percy Park Women v Cancer Bike Ride
Rugby is a team sport that has always delivered great social and community occasions and on 'the coast' there is none more eagerly anticipated than the Boxing Day 'dispute' between Percy Park and Rockcliff. The fixture has always been about two rugby communities gathering in friendship to bandy and exchange stories about years and games gone by. And within that spirit the home club will always give a generous donation to a chosen charity. This year Percy Park chose to support 'Women v Cancer', a charity championed by four ladies from Percy Park who are taking part in the 'Women v Cancer' cycle ride from London to Paris. The cycle ride is a special fundraising partnership between Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo's Cervical Cancer trust. Their challenge is to cycle around 240 miles in three days through the South Downs and Northern France ending with a spectacular finish at the Eiffel Tower.
Both Percy Park and Rockcliff Rugby Clubs wish Nicky, Hannah, Karen and Carrie all the best in their endeavours to meet the challenge
