Just before Christmas, Josh Beaumont and Andy Forsythe visited Canon Slade to start their annual Santa Run and award the medals at the end, aswell as chat to some of the Canon Slade rugby players. Fortunately, whilst it was a rather chilly day, the weather stayed dry and there were plenty of runners, all dressed in fancy dress, for the cross country run. Speaking with their master in charge of rubgy, Craig Robinson, he said that the provision of the equipment, the fantastic support of Bolton RUFC and the liaison with Sale Sharks was making a real difference to the squad and the school were delighted with their gift.
Pictured above are Josh and Andy, with some of the rugby team (who had just completed the Santa Run), with the post protectors that Sale Sharks had been able to gift to the school earlier in the year.
Bolton RUFC and Canon Slade are in the process of organising a trip to see Sale Sharks v Gloucester on 7th February and are aiming to make great use of the new Samurai Incentive Scheme whereby groups of over 50 can earn themselves a £200 voucher from Samurai to be spent on team wear. If you would like to find out more about this scheme, or to enquire about becoming a Connections partner, please contact Community Events Co-ordinator, Helen Stuart by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0161 667 7518.
