Wounded Lions 500 Challenge

31st January 2020

London Scottish are taking part in the Wounded Lions 500 Challenge on Thursday 6th February.

The LS team will be setting off from the RAG at 10:15am and joining up with ex-Scotland captain and ex-London Scottish player, Rob Wainwright, and his team at Twickenham Stadium.

Come down to watch the likes of our very own president Paul Burnell take part in this challenge to raise money for Doddie Weir’s foundation My Name’5 Doddie and Tom Smith’s chosen charity 40TUDE.

The Scots’ will be joining in on two legs of the bike challenge, finishing in Northampton.

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this amazing cause thus far. Help us in reaching our £5K target by donating on our fundraising page HERE!

Our Minis are also getting involved! Get your kids involved in tomorrow’s 5-mile ride around the Old Deer Park.

If you’re unable to take part in the Minis ride tomorrow or in the big challenge on the 6th, get on your bike anyway and donating a pound for every mile you’ve ridden. Even if you’re just riding down to the local shop, record your miles and get donating!
