A YOUTH team at Ayr Rugby Club has begun a fund-raising campaign to send the team on tour next year.

A tour to Northern Ireland is being planned for the club’s P7 squad in March of next year.

The squad – and their coaches and parents – are planning sponsored walks, race nights and prize draws to fund the trip, and have also launched an online fund-raiser so the players can take part in the tour.

A spokesperson for the squad’s fund-raising team said: “A lot of hard work goes into this, so we are just looking to create the best opportunity for these young sporting people to enjoy their time on tour!”

Donations to the club’s campaign can be added at justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ayrrugbyp7tour2023.
