On 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 painted 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.
On 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.
We 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).
Our 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.
In 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!
Today, Apex Quim sent her daughter to school wearing an awesome looking roller girl outfit to help do her bit for Sport Relief and we think she looks amazing!
Don’t forget about the Wenches doing the Sport Relief Mile three legged though and you can sponsor us here . Don’t worry, there will be pictures x
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.
