Trinity School Join Jacko in Fundraising for Headway

David 'Jacko' Jackson went back to the school he was once a teacher at this week, Trinity School in Aspley, to explain to the pupils and staff all about the Nottingham Rugby Charity Cycle Challenge and why he wants to raise money for Headway - The brain injury association.

Commenting on the visit Jackson said, "It was great to go back to Trinity and see a few old friends! The staff and pupils there are fantastic and it was great of Mr McKeever and Mr Dexter to invite me to come in and speak during assembly.

"Headway is a fantastic charity and they provide much needed support to people and their families who are affected by brain injuries. I was fortunate that my head injury, although it has forced me to retire from rugby, doesn't have a great deal of impact in my normal day to day life, other than the odd headache, blurred vision or loss of memory.

"That is not the case for lots of other brain injury victims, who can have their whole lives turned upside down. The reason I'm doing the cycle challenge is to help raise money for Headway so they can continue to provide support to those that need it. It's great that the school are getting behind me and the charity and want to help raise money"

In the week leading up to the Nottingham Rugby Charity Cycle Challenge on 30th March, Mr Dexter is arranging a pupil versus staff challenge to see who can ride the same 82 miles Jacko will be riding, during lunchtimes throughout the week, with donations for taking part going to Headway.

The Nottingham Rugby Charity Cycle Challenge takes place on Sunday 30th March leaving Leeds Carnegie's Headingly Stadium, travelling 82 miles to Meadow Lane home of Nottingham Rugby in time for the 3pm KO when Nottingham Rugby face Leeds Carnegie.
