Aaron's Story

Hi, and welcome to Rugby Against Cancer website, my name is Aaron Beesley and here is the reason why I started this charity…

Well I’ve played rugby my whole life, since I could run and hold a rugby ball and have loved every minute of it. I personally know 5 people who have/had Cancer that are involved in local clubs and I’ve seen how it has affected these people and those who know them. 

I’ve also had very close family and friends who have had Cancer and I have seen first-hand the effect that this awful cancer disease has on them and also their family and friends. 

I have been thinking about how to raise valuable funds for local and some national Cancer charities and it just clicked….RUGBY. 

I know I have said I’ve played rugby, but also I’ve witnessed first-hand how the RUGBY family comes together to support each other. 

The rugby community truly is amazing place and really pulls together to help others where needed, so that got me thinking could I use rugby to help raise funds for these charities? Well the answer is YES. So I have decided to call on the rugby family to help me raise as much money for these amazing charities so they can continue their amazing work. 

It is starting off as a small idea but who knows how big this could get… 

Please get in touch with me if you would like to help out?
