Make-A-Wish launch keepy-uppies campaign

It’s important that, at times like this, everyone comes together – and that includes football and rugby.

Our friends at Make-A-Wish UK have launched a new campaign with England and Chelsea defender Millie Bright, challenging you to do as many keepy-uppies as you can.

We say using a rugby ball should get you extra points.

Like many other charities around the country, Make-A-Wish are feeling the effects of the Coronavirus outbreak and have over 2,000 children waiting for wishes to be fulfilled when the world is a safer place again.
