It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 7s ….. what more can I say – here’s the poster:
So, my good friends Tudu, Zaffar and Paul will be in attendance – the Rugby Uncle 7s will be playing as will Zafar’s Afghan team …. Spitfire beer etc etc. The sun has also been guaranteed and that means the RAF may even turn up!
As a bonus, Paul Walsh intends arriving in style on a Hero Cycle all the way from India. Don’t worry he’s not completely mad, he’s only going to ride it from Cardiff. His Ride for Khelo will start on 24 May from Zaffar’s Cardiff Metropolitan University. Day 1 will take them to Gloucester where they join up with Tudu at Hartpury College. Day 2 is Gloucester to Oxford and then they have the sevens.
If you would like to join him on the ride and take a turn on the Hero you would be very welcome. We want this to be about raising awareness for the ‘Right to Play’ as enshrined in Article 31 of the UN Convention:
That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.
That member governments shall respect and promote the right of the child to participate fully in cultural and artistic life and shall encourage the provision of appropriate and equal opportunities for cultural, artistic, recreational and leisure activity.
We’ll also look to raise some funds for our Khelo Rugby project through Rugby Uncle and to this end we have a JustGiving Page HERE – please share this with friends and family and please really do think about taking part, 2 days that you’ll remember for a long time….especially when you see Paul trying to get up a hill!
To see some more details and to stay up to date with the ride, please join the Ride for Khelo Group on Facebook.
