A New World First…Job Done!

Our epic Arctic Rugby Challengers have only gone and done it!

Their commitment, determination and hard work has paid off…and after 18 months of preparation they made it to the Magnetic North Pole, created an official rugby pitch and played an official game of 7′s – we expect to have set a Guinness World Record for the northern most game of rugby ever played and will wait in anticipation for the confirmation.

Congratulations to our incredible Challengers, who have completed this incredible journey all in support of Wooden Spoon, raising vital funds for disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK and Ireland. So Proud!
