Wenches raise money whilst eating cake

McMurphyandDuchessOn Monday 31st March, our team sponsor Nando’s Portsmouth held a fundraising coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support. Portsmouth Roller Wenches were pleased to lend a couple of our skaters for the cause, with dynamic duo The Duchess of Crutches and R.I.P. McMurphy in attendance, both of whom have been personally touched with cancer in their families. Duch did a great job of flyering the joint for our upcoming bout, and cake-fiend McMurphy did her bit by eating as many baked goods as possible and emptying her wallet into the fundraising buckets. They even had their faces Duchess&McMurphy1painted with the wench logo! Both had great fun mingling with attendees and the employees of our favourite team sponsors. We hope lots of money was raised for this fantastic cause! To donate to Macmillan cancer support, please visit their facebook page or their website.

Many thanks to R.I.P. McMurphy and The Duchess of Crutches for their participation and write-up.

More peg-legged than three-legged!

100_0593On Sunday 23rd March, a group of Wenches completed the sport relief mile. So far we have raised £436.83 and we may have some more donations coming in.

 

 

 

100_0578We all started off the run tied to another person, apart from Megalith Rokz, who did the first half of the run with her daughter on her shoulders. The pairs were Up Anne Atom and Dropkick Molly, Lottie Lunatic and Betty Bloodaxe, Wheelma Flinstone and “Wench-in-training” Alyssa, and finally myself, Des and Smash Hips, though the trio only lasted a minute or two (walking as a three is very hard).

100_0571Our legs were tied with skipping ropes and the rope burn was quite difficult to deal with so after the first one or two laps Wheelma Flintstone, Alyssa, Betty Bloodaxe and Lottie Moon all untied themselves to join Smash Hips running and, needless to say, beat myself, Des, Up Anne Atom and Dropkick Molly, who stayed tied together, to the finish line.

 

100_0591In order for the four of us to complete the race still tied to each other, we had to switch legs halfway, and Des and I even did the last lap backwards just to see if we could and somehow we didn’t fall over!

Our group’s success must be a result of how hard we train so thanks Coach! Many thanks to Up Anne Atom for getting us involved in this incredible event. We can’t wait for the next Sport Relief as it will give us all the chance to do it again!

 

 

Peg-legged or three-legged? Wenches do Sport Relief!

Some of our very own Wenches will be doing the Sport Relief Mile, this Sunday 23rd March. But, to embrace our ever-present team spirit, we will be doing it three-legged! It’s all for a wonderful cause and we would really appreciate any donations that you can make. If you’re at the Mountbatten Centre come say hi, we’d love to see you.

Are you ready to rumble?

1535501_10152367625468243_1541522564_nThe Portsmouth Roller Wenches are and they welcome you to come and enjoy the carnage. A new year brings a new season and this time, the theme is ‘Rumble in the Docks’. The Wenches are kicking off with ‘Hitting the Wreck’ and this is a rematch not to be missed.

Last February, Croydon Roller Derby, the Wenches’ worthy opponents, won the battle but the war is not over. Both teams will be angling for a win, but who will rule the seas and who will capsize in the docks?

To find out, join the Wenches on February 22nd at Havant Leisure Centre. Doors open at 3:30pm and first whistle is at 4:00pm. Tickets can be purchased from on the BUY TICKETS page until MIDDAY on FRIDAY 21st Feb, or on the door on bout day. For more information, please check out our Facebook page .

Why not come along to see an exciting game, the Wenches know that you’ll get hooked!
