Local sports teams have stepped up to the plate during these challenging times to raise vital funds for local causes.

With Welshpool Rugby Club raising thousands of pounds last week with their virtual collective run to Eastern Europe and back, Waterloo Rovers have launched their own bid to raise money by raising a few glasses!

Goalkeeper Matt McWhinnie explained that player-manager, Mark Proctor, floated the idea that they should raise funds for the NHS so the club, well-known for its camaraderie off the pitch, came up with the perfect idea.

“We came up with the idea of raising a glass and drinking a pint for all the amazing work being done by the NHS, especially here in Wales,” said Matt.
“It’s been really well supported online, in particular Facebook, with first and reserve team players, committee members, supporters and people not normally associated with club taking part.”

The challenge involves being filmed drinking a pint (preferably in one) and then nominating others to do the same. Once done, the person nominated should donate to the cause.

The club is inching closer towards its £1,000 target this afternoon with the money to be split equally between the seven local health board charitable funds in Wales, plus Velindre and Welsh Ambulance Service.

Anybody can take part and donate whether they’re nominated or not. The link to donate is
