The season may be over and the players taking a well-earned Summer break from training, but that doesn't mean that things are quiet at Hope Valley RFC.

As part of their continued support for the Club's adopted charity, The MSA Trust, and to coincide with Hope Carnival a group of the players decided to carry a full beer barrel, kindly supplied by Intrepid Brewing Company, on a challenging circular route from Hope via the Great Ridge and Mam Tor before taking part in the village's carnival parade.

Their efforts were well received en route with plenty of donations taking the amount raised so far over the £1000 mark. If anyone wants to contribute to the charity they can do so via the Club's Just Giving page at https:// www.justgiving.com/ fundraising/hope valleyrfc
