On 11/11/11 i will be playing Touch Rugby non-stop for 12 hours to Raise Money for Help for Heroes. The event will take place at Benfield Centre for Sporting Excellence in Newcastle upon Tyne. The event will begin at 11am with 2 minutes silence to commemorate the sacrifice our service personnel have made and continue to make on a daily basis.
People of all ages and abilities will take part throughout the day while myself and one other will play continuously. We have children in their scheduled PE lessons taking part, active serving members of the Armed Forces, players from local Community Clubs right up to people that have never picked up a rugby ball before.
I am an Ex Royal Navy Submariner and I will play on one team and we have an Ex RAF Regiment member playing for the other team for the entire 12 hour period without a break. For those of you that know me well, i am sure you will agree, 12 hours soild rugby will just about kill me!!!!!!
