Wisbech Grammar School Rugby Team powering ahead with their fundraising efforts at Tesco Extra 14- 15 July
25 boys from WGS Rugby team (made up of 5th and 6th Formers) will be spending their weekend at Tesco Extra in Wisbech on 14 July from 19:00 to 23:00 and 15 July 8:00am – 14:00 biking and rowing 385 miles (the length of their tour) to raise money for a cause close to their hearts; Wooden Spoon and also helping towards the cost of their upcoming USA Rugby Tour.
Cllr Steve Tierney, Mayor of Wisbech will be supporting the boys by visiting them on Saturday 15 July 10:00am; he will be giving them some encouragement in support of their efforts.
It is really important that we give back to the community and focus on our fundraising efforts. The values of Wooden Spoon are similar to our own where the School promotes and inspires all their pupils to have passion, integrity and team work. I am very proud to be part of the Rugby team and representing the School in America.

WGS Rugby Team will be starting their tour in San Francisco and ending in Los Angeles where they will play four fixtures. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and the School has been busy planning and fundraising for the trip. Fundraising is a large part of life at the School and the boys wanted to also raise money for Wooden Spoon which is the Children’s Charity of Rugby. From sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and sports activity areas to respite, medical and community care, they fund around 70 projects each year that support disadvantaged and disabled children. Since their founding in 1983, they’ve distributed in excess of £24 million, helping over one million young people.
So, come along to Tesco’s extra at Cromwell Road, Wisbech to support these passionate 25 Rugby players and offer a donation in support of their efforts.
Thank you to Tesco extra for supporting the School and as the saying goes,“Every little helps”
