Fundraising efforts for this year's Holland Tour continue on Saturday 17th March when members of the youth teams who will be travelling to the Netherlands take part in a sponsored cycle ride in Royal Wootton Bassett High Street.
Players from our Under 12, 13 and 14 teams will be taking it in turns to ride static bikes, covering the 336 miles between Bassett and Dordrecht, the location of the hostel where the teams will be staying in Holland.
The sponsored ride will be taking place underneath the town's iconic Town Hall, where there will also be a cake stall, tombola and collection buckets to help raise further money.
Events held so far have raised over £5,000, with the money helping to cover some of the costs for what are always memorable, enriching experiences for the players.
