Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club and Friends Annual Charity Walk and Fun Day This year the “Birmingham Moseley RFC Charity Walk 2019” is on Saturday 22nd June. BBQ back at the clubhouse from 5.00pm onwards
This year, our chosen Charity is Birmingham Ability Counts League (BACL)
BACL was formed in 2003 and with growth and popularity they grew out of their then home at Aston Villa’s Academy and Birmingham Moseley were delighted to welcome them into their current new home at Billesley in 2014.
The walk will be a celebration of PAN Disability Football, and all players at BACL will play their parts in the day’s events.
BACL play tournaments every Sunday from September to the end of May and up to now have been running a seven a side league. Next season they will be moving to full 11 a side games played over 60 minutes and specifically for the further development of PAN Disability Football
The Walk – take your choice…
Version 1, is from the clubhouse to the Bluebell Cider House at Earlswood and back (approx. 14 miles – should take around 4 hours plus refreshment breaks). Version 2, we will transport you to the Bluebell and you then walk back to the club (approx. 7 miles – should take 2 hours plus stoppages).
It is slightly different this year (and less miles) but still for good causes.
We will walk from the Clubhouse in Billesley Common up to Yardley Wood Bus Garage and get on to the canal and then continue to the Bluebell Cider House (approx. 7 miles, should take around 2 hours). Once there you will see Mel who will give you a voucher/ticket for a free drink and burger for when you get back to the clubhouse.
Once you have collected your voucher feel free to walk back along the same route back to Billesley at your leisure, there are 2 “watering holes on route – Lady Lane Wharf, who are always very welcoming and the Drawbridge Pub.
Walking time should be around 4 hours in total there and back plus refreshment breaks, but please can we all be back for around 5.00pm for the BBQ etc.
We are aiming to set off from the clubhouse at 10-30am-11.00am for the full walk.
If you wish to do the shorter version, we will run you to the Bluebell at approx. 12.30pm-1.00pm. Hopefully then we can all walk back all together.
£5.00 Entrance Fee So that I can keep control of the numbers taking part, it is £5.00 to enter this year, but you can get your entrance fee back from your sponsorship money (if required). A flyer and a sponsorship form will be printed, so please look out for them. Please try and get as much sponsorship as possible, there will be forms behind the bar and as previously stated, please hand in all monies, with your sponsorship form to the club and we will arrange to make the presentations to the charities at hopefully our first home game next season Have a great Day. Thanks again to everyone who has helped and obviously to you the walkers for taking part. Join us or Sponsor us!!
