Players and staff from Dragons Academy are celebrating after special cycling fundraiser around Gwent surpassed its original target.
The next generation of Dragons spent last week in the saddle to raise vital funds for Leukaemia UK after Sam Peard – the brother of Academy second row prospect Joe – was diagnosed with leukaemia.
Members of the Academy – both staff and players – clocked up 100 miles each to show support for Sam and his family while raising vital funds.
The target for the week was £2,000 and over the weekend the target was smashed!
For over 40 years, Leukaemia UK has been making a difference to those living with blood cancer by funding essential emotional support, key hospital facilities, giving critical financial relief and funding innovative research into better care and treatments for blood cancers.
