Young rugby players got on their bikes and pedalled 17 miles to help a friend who was injured.

Rugby clubs from across Stamford, Oakham and further afield took part in the Stamford Rugby SG500 sponsored cycle ride on September 19 and 20 in aid of the Seb Goold Trust, which supports Seb, a Stamford Minis player who lost a leg after falling from a moving coach last year. A marathon relay around Rutland Water was held for coaches and friends of Seb, including his father Nick, while in the afternoon 70 junior rugby players completed a 17-mile lap.

As well as those local enough to attend, Worksop and Chesterfield Panthers RFC have also contributed, which has, so far raised over £30,000 for the trust.
