Bulldogs in the Pink

Bulldogs in the Pink

BATLEY Bulldogs will be holding their second ‘Bulldogs in the Pink’ weekend on August 15/16.

The weekend will be held as a tribute to women who have battled or are battling with breast cancer.

The event was a huge hit in 2014, with £9,900 being raised by the club for breast cancer charities.

As a result the Bulldogs have said the weekend will become an annual occurrence.

Events will start at 10am on the morning of Saturday August 15 with a family-fun sponsored walk.

The walkers will make their way to Oakwell Hall from the Bulldogs’ ground and then back to Priestley’s Bar, where a free drink will be available for all those taking part.

The walk is expected to be well attended after 75 people took part in the event last year.

As well as the sponsored walk, Batley Bulldogs will be holding a girl’s rugby tournament at the club, which was won by Birstall Victoria U14s last year.

A tombola and cake sale will also be running as the tournament takes place and spectators will be treated to refreshments.

Pink pig racing and a disco will be available to all interested in the evening of Saturday 15.

On Sunday August 16, Batley Bulldogs will be sporting a pink kit for their game and those attending will be encouraged by the club to wear pink themselves. Pink t-shirts are to be sold at the ground to commemorate the day.

The players’ kit will be sold for charity funds after the match and events will again be held at the club throughout the day.
