DofE Fundraising update



Eccles RFC DofE Silver Award group have organised a sponsored triathlon to raise funds for their expeditions this summer.

Their expeditions will involve a 2 day practise expedition to Ullswater and a 3 day qualifying expedition on the River Wye. As these expeditions involve a lot of equipment hire there are considerable costs involved.

Their “Tour de Premiership Ruby” Triathlon will take place on Friday 11th April at Eccles RFC Gym and outside Sale Sharks AJ Bell Stadium using various pieces of equipment such as rowing machines, exercise bikes, treadmills and cross trainers. As a relay team they aim to cover the distance between all the UK premiership clubs which is 903 miles (1447Km).

Please give your support and donate or sponsor whatever you can afford.

You can now donate on-line from the donations page on the website

We will be setup outside the AJ Bell Stadium from 11am on Fri 11th April, so anyone who wants to support them please pop along and throw some money in the collection buckets.

Collection buckets will be available for Sale Sharks & Harlequins fans arriving for the game in the evening.

Please contact the DofE team if you want any more information on

Many Thanks.

Eccles RFC DofE Team.


Note. Total distance of 903 miles may not be completed on the event day of 11th April but will be done prior to the group’s expedition.
