We did it!

Thanks to all of you, we got to Stirling- and we won!

It was an amazing game, with every player putting in every ounce of effort they could- and we came away with a 50-17 win.

But the day wasn't all smooth sailing...

We set off at 7am from the University of Leeds and headed north. But three hours in, we got word from the opposition that the pitches at Stirling were frozen and unplayable... with no choice other than to turn back, we kept going north, hoping that another pitch could be found!

After another very tense hour, as we reached the outskirts of Glasgow we finally heard the news we were hoping for- an unfrozen pitch had been found!

Our special thanks to Cartha Queen's Park RFC, who stepped in to save the day, with pitches and even food for after the match. 

However, none of it could have been possible without all of you. Thanks to your generosity, we have been able to stay in the Cup, and progress onto the next round- where we will play The University of Liverpool on the 5th February. Thank you to everyone who donated on this page, or at our social, or who bought a delicious home made cake! 

If you pledged for a reward- good news! The player's photographs are being printed, and should be in the post to you by the end of the week.

Our project is over- and we've smashed our target! 

Over the past month, you have all donated an incredible £1,900!

...meaning that we will definitely be going to Stirling- and if we make it to the next round we have half funded it already! 

A final, huge thanks to the donors in the last week- Nichola Campbell, George Peden, Matthew Binns, Julie Gill, Alice Savage (again!) and Philip Tomlins. Your generous donations helped push us over the line.

Thank you also to all our members who donated to our charity social on Wednesday- the £180 we raised has been added to the total, and made a huge difference! 

If you have claimed a reward, please make sure that you contact LUUWRUFC@hotmail.com so that we can arrange you receiving it.

'Baking' news- today's sale was the icing on the cake!

Today's cake sale in the University of Leeds Student Union raised over £70 towards our goal! Thank you to every one who came buy to try one of our delicious treats- and well done to all the bakers who created such delicious cakes. 

There are still a few days left of our fundraiser, so if you haven't already, please share this page on social media to help us get the last boost!

Just 7 days to go- time for a last big push

With just one week remaining to reach our overall goal, we've got some big plans to raise the last few pounds!

On Tuesday 5th November we will be holding a cake sale in the University of Leeds Student Union- so head down for some sweet treats.

And on Wednesday 6th November we will be holding our annual Charity Social, with the proceeds going towards our goal. This will be an event for members of the club, but if you would like to nominate any player to take on a challenge when we reach a certain level of funding, feel free to comment down below!

As ever, a massive thank you to all our generous donors in the last week- Radeyah Oyefolu, Danielle O'Connor, Anne-Laure Deschamps, Julia Clark and Julia McCartney.

However, we are still only about half way to our overall goal, which would enable us to get back up to Scotland for another match. So please help us keep this amazing drive going for the second half!
