Rugby Editorial 4th Mar, 2019   0

TIRELESS fund-raisers have again donated thousands to the life-saving Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance charity – taking their total contribution over the £60,000 mark.

Rugby Rokeby Lions Club presented the charity with a cheque for £5,000, raised at the Lions’ annual sponsored walk – now called Sponsored Challenge – at Draycote Water.

The Lions thanked the public, Severn Trent Draycote Water, the Rugby First Responders who provided medical cover at the event and Sainsbury’s for allowing the Lions to hold collections at their Rugby superstore.

The 2019 Sponsored Challenge will take place on Sunday May 19 at Draycote Water. Call 01788 313122 or 331194, visit or email [email protected] for more information and sponsor forms.
