Members of the NUIG sponsored Connacht Rugby Academy and the Connacht Rugby sub-Academy are fundraising for children’s cancer charity Hand in Hand, this November. The young players are attempting to grow moustaches as part of the annual Movember event to raise funds for the charity.

Hand in Hand offer a range of home support services for families affected by cancer. They help to reduce some of the stress and anxiety by engaging with local professional service suppliers to provide a tailor-made package of care to suit each family individually. As part of the fundraising efforts, Good4U the official Connacht Rugby snack supplier are supporting the Academy players. The Sligo-based company are holding a 5k fun run, in Sligo town to help raise funds for the charity.
