Pupils at Bilton Grange Preparatory School took to the rugby fields on Wednesday to raise money for Wooden Spoon, the official rugby charity supporting disadvantaged children across the UK. Taking inspiration from the Rugby World Cup, pupils were challenged to pass the ball as many times as possible in a 15 minute period as part of the Power Pass challenge.
Conceived at Bilton Grange in 2010, the Power Pass challenge has now become a national fundraising challenge supported by the IAPS charitable trust. Bilton Grange pupils passed the ball 16,145 times contributing to the national target of 500,000 passes by IAPS schools.
Headmaster Alex Osiatynski said ‘we are very proud that the Power Pass Challenge began at Bilton Grange and has now grown into a national event, our pupils loved taking part. Not only is it a great way of raising funds for a worthy cause, it is also a fantastic event for the whole BG community.’
