Dates set for Batley’s Pink Weekend

Dates set for Batley’s Pink Weekend

Batley Bulldogs have announced their Pink Weekend will take place for a fourth year running, with events beginning on Friday August 18 and continuing up until the Challenge Cup final on August 26.

The event has taken place annually for the last three years and the club has raised £30,000 in that time, with all proceeds going to breast cancer charities.

This year’s weekend will begin on August 18 with a cake and coffee afternoon before a 10k family stroll that begins at 10am on the Saturday.

Anyone participating in the walk will be able to obtain sponsor forms, with all asked to donate £3 to take part. 

For those unable to attend the walk Batley Boys will be hosting an allday tournament at Mount Pleasant with stalls and slides as well as bar and kitchen facilities available.

Saturday evening sees ‘The Pink Pig Race Night,’ with pork sandwiches being served with all ages welcome.

On the Sunday Batley Boys will host a few games in the morning. Batley have requested a home game for the weekend, with the RFL indicating they will aim to accommodate the request. 

The team will play in a one-off pink kit which can be ordered from the club. 

Most of them have already been snapped up, so anyone who wishes to purchase one must be quick.

There will also be pink tops available sporting a bra and cleavage, and the club has asked that all fans support the cause and wear one with pride. 

The final event will take place the following weekend with a 10k walk from London Broncos’ ground to Wembley on Challenge Cup weekend.
