Following on from the success of the auction to support the Duke of Edinburgh Award at Eccles RFC, today the people of Eccles and Asda showed their support towards the Award Scheme.
Whilst Asda couldn’t contribute to the auction, the Duke of Edinburghs Award scheme was made part of the “support a local cause” green token collection scheme.
With some surprise, but a very happy smile, the Award scheme has won, and here is a cheque for £200 being presented to Mark Dutton. With him are Joe Gaffey, who recently achieved his Bronze award, Eleanor Sidall, currently on her Silver award and Dan Wignall who is undertaking his Gold.
This money will help support the award going forward into 2015, with an increasing number of young players from our community completing the award.
