Children in Need goes down a treat

3 December 2012

The RUCST's Children in Need bucket collecting raised £249 for the charity. And Pudsey emerges triumphant against Miller Bear.

Each and every year the RUCST is always proud and excited to help and raise money for the Children in Need charity. The Trust takes pleasure in arranging different fundraising activities within the Rotherham community.

The trust is also pleased to say that for the second year running, the RUCST supported Wath Comprehensive School in their efforts to raise money for the Children in Need charity. The Millers were kind enough to donate some of their own signed memorabilia, including shirts and footballs, which the school’s pupils and staff were biting at the bit to get their hands on through the raffle.

But the RUCST didn’t stop there. The Trust decided to put on their own Children in Need festival of fundraising during the Cheltenham game on November 17th.
The Trust’s Children in Need bucket collecting army marched around the ground on the day, graciously taking any donations. The RUCST bucket collecting army also made an appearance with Pudsey Bear at Parkgate Shopping Centre.
And, thanks to your tremendous backing, the bucket collecting donations came up to £249 for Children in Need.

However, the iconic Children in Need mascot didn’t want you to go home empty handed. The famous Pudsey Bear emerged victorious against Miller Bear in a half-time penalty shoot-out special. Pudsey walked away with a 4-3 win, after producing a save that Millers’ own Andy Warrington would have been proud of to finish it off.

Rotherham United and its Community Sports Trust would like to thank you again for your donations to help Children in Need.

The RUCST’s Health Officer, Alex Wilson, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that we could get Pudsey Bear down to Parkgate and the New York Stadium. It is such a pleasing sight to see so many individuals giving up their hard earned money, especially within this current economic state. And I’d like to thank everyone for donating to Children in Need.”
