Is there something you could give up for a least a month? Why not join the players from Gloucester Rugby who will be giving something up this spring, and at the same time will be helping the NSPCC make a firm stand against bullying.
The players are taking a stand against bullying and asking people to take up the Kicking Bullying into Touch Challenge. The challenge aims to raise funds by calling on people to get sponsored to give something up for a month any time before the Guinness Premiership Final at Twickenham on 29 May. All funds raised will benefit from the ChildLine /Guinness Premiership Kicking Bullying into Touch anti-bullying programme.
Gareth Delve said: "I'll be kicking chocolate into touch for one month and am hoping that people will join me by giving something up too. If you really can't give something up then you can sponsor me at www.justgiving.com/garethdelve. It's going to be hard to give chocolate up for a month but because it will help more children deal with bullying that will keep me going."
The Kicking Bullying into Touch Challenge aims to raise £30,000 to help thousands more children in schools throughout the UK learn about bullying.
Sophie Moss, Senior Development Manager for the ChildLine service said: "Bullying is the subject most children call the NSPCC's ChildLine service about. Last year around 18% of all children counselled by ChildLine contacted us about bullying, so the more children we can provide advice and support to through the Kicking Bullying into Touch programme the better.
"We're really hoping that as many people as possible will take the challenge to give something up for a month because even £20 raised in sponsorship per person will make a massive difference."
The Guinness Premiership clubs are also dedicating Round 19 on Easter Weekend, 2 to 4 April, as a special Kicking Bullying into Touch weekend and Gloucester will be selling special tickets to their match against Saracens at 5.30pm on Saturday, 3 April.
