Travis Perkins St Albans and Travis Perkins Bricket Wood are inviting would-be rugby players to visit on 1st February to ‘try’ their hand at the ‘Cement Mixer Challenge.’ Participants will be given the chance to successfully land a pass into a moving cement mixer, in a bid to raise essential funds for Keech Hospice Care.
For each rugby ball successfully thrown into the mixer, Travis Perkins will make a £1 donation to the local charity which provides specialist care for both children and adults with life-limiting or terminal conditions.
Those taking part on the day will be competing to land the most passes into the mixer in a row, with the winner receiving not only the title of Ultimate Cement Mixer Champion, but also £50 worth of Tesco vouchers to spend.
Steve Rowe, branch manager, Travis Perkins St Albans, says: “Travis Perkins is a long time supporter of rugby having sponsored the Northampton Saints since 2001, so we thought organising a fundraiser that incorporates our rugby ties whilst raising money for such a good cause was a great idea.”
“It looks set to be a really fun event and we hope everyone gets involved on the day so we can raise as much money as possible to support the amazing work Keech Hospice Care provide.”
The Cement Mixer Challenge is open to everyone and will be taking place at Travis Perkins St Albans on Campfield Road and Travis Perkins Bricket Wood on Station Road on 1st February, 1st March and 29th March 2017 . So ‘scrum on down’ from 8am to 3pm to try your hand and raise some money.
