From 6 to 60, Mackie Rugby Players Raise Funds Together

Posted on Updated on

Can you imagine being committed enough to your sport, club or cause to take part in it for a continuous fourteen hours? 

Read on to hear why men and boys in Stonehaven will be doing just that and how your sponsorship could support local talent and gain advertising for your business.


Rugbython at Recloak 23rd August

On the 23rd of August 2014, the players from Mackie Academy Former Pupils Rugby Football Club (FP RFC) will take part in a fundraising Rugbython at Redcloak Rugby Pitches.

In aid of club funds, players from the mini section through to the senior players and Mammoths will play continuous touch rugby for 14 hours, from 8am to 11pm.

Three years ago the club did a similar event which was a roaring success.  This year, with bigger squads, more players and parents, the club hopes to raise even more money to go towards developing the massive talent shown by the kids and young adults of the area.  Each player is collecting sponsorship individually and each hour of rugby is available for sponsorship by a company or individual at a price of £250, having a range of advertising benefits.


Why Are We Doing This?

Mackie continues to have one of the biggest youth systems in place in Scotland. With a thriving senior section too, we have over 450 playing members and current youth Scotland and district players within our ranks.  The club strives and succeeds in developing these players despite having minimal facilities at our disposal.  This is done through having a fantastic ethos, great leadership, committed coaches and a spirit across the club, from the youngest micro player to the oldest mammoth, which is second to none.


Would You Like To Get Active & Get Involved?

We are always looking for people to join us and be part of Mackie FP RFC, whether as a sponsor, a coach, a player or a tuck shop helper.

Every member is welcomed, it’s a great way to have fun and get fit and any help on or off the pitch is highly appreciated!
