You may have seen it on the news, in the papers and even on This Morning today - the celebrity supported cycle ride to raise money for Lawrence Dallaglio's charity "RugbyWorks".
Joining Lawrence was our Hon. Secretary, Alyn Morgan. Together, the participants raised £1m after cycling 1800km from Evian in France to Split in Croatia.
"RugbyWorks helps young people who have been excluded from school to get back into education or the workplace. 65% of those in prison have been excluded from school so it’s a very worthwhile endeavor to try and prevent young people getting into more trouble" explained Alyn.
From all of us at the BES - well done Alyn and co!
L-R: Andrew Ridgley, Austin Healey, Alyn Morgan, Lawrence Dallaglio and John Hannah
