#Doinit4Dan and Water Aid

Mr Cotgrave, Kilgarth maths teacher

Along with players from Hoylake Rugby Club, our Maths teacher Mr Andy Cotgrave, is currently preparing to take on the challenge of breaking the world record for the longest touch rugby game, which currently stands at 30 hours 3 minutes and 11 seconds. The world record attempt will take place on Friday 16th July 2021, at Hoylake Rugby Club, starting at 8am.  Mr Cotgrave recently received the following letter of support from Mick Whitley MP:

“I’m sending my very best wishes to Andy Cotgrave from Kilgarth School in my constituency and everyone else who will be attempting to break the world record for the longest ever game of touch rugby on July 16th. This is an absolutely fantastic initiative, which will provide local residents with a welcome opportunity to come together and have some fun once public health restrictions have been lifted. This world record attempt is a very moving tribute to Andy’s friend Dan Miller who tragically passed away last June. The game will also raise much-needed funds for Water Aid, a charity that Dan supported, which does vital work providing clean drinking water and sanitation to people living in some of the poorest parts of the world. I encourage anyone who can to give generously. This effort exemplifies the strength of community spirit that has kept our community going over the past year and I applaud Andy’s commitment to making our world a better place…”
