Players and staff at Rhydymwyn Football Club are to take on a charity challenge in aid of Mind this weekend.

21 club members will travel to Yorkshire to take on the Tough Mudder Classic, an obstacle course run stretching 10 miles, to raise money for Mind as the club’s official charity for this season.

So far, over £4,000 has been raised, bringing the team ever closer to their target of £5,500 of funds which will go towards supporting mental health in people of all ages across Wales and the UK.

First managers Anthony Weaver and Jordan Parry said:

“This is a challenge months in the making, and when the idea of taking on the Tough Mudder was first mentioned, the response from the lads was fantastic.

We all recognise the past year has been a tough one for our communities, so we’re proud to be raising money for Mind and will continue to support them as a club throughout this season.

A massive thanks has to go to everyone who has donated so far, as we close in on our target of £5,500 which would be an amazing achievement from all.”
