Players work with pizzas for 3 Peaks Challenge!

Posted: Friday 22nd November 2019 - 5:30 PM


All of the Tigers First Team and coaching staff will face the three Yorkshire peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough on Saturday, 30th November with the aim of completing the challenge under 12 hours in a bid to raise funds for the club’s official charity partner.

The Tigers aim for this challenge is to raise £10,000 and to help the fundraising efforts Jesse & Pete decided to work with local eatery Pizza Prima to deliver orders around the local area. 20% of each order taken on the night, plus any tips received went straight into the Tigers fundraising pot for the challenge. 2020 recruit Tyla Hepi also jumped in to help out and given how thick and fast the orders were coming in any help was welcome.

Hojabr Masoodi, owner of the local pizzeria, was delighted to help raise funds for The Prince of Wales Hospice “Wednesday was brilliant with Jesse, Pete & Tyla and we didn’t expect it to get so busy but it was crazy, the main reason for doing it was to help out the charity, so with 20% of every order taken and all tips collected together the lads made £255 on the night.”

Jesse & Pete will be joining the Pizza Prima workforce again on Saturday night, given how busy the pizzeria gets on the weekend the players will be in store assisting on the till, collecting orders and helping run Pizza Prima’s raffle, again with all funds going into the Tigers’ Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge fundraiser.

Hojabr has promised a couple of surprises in his store on Saturday with the two Cas players from 6-8pm and is hoping to raise a similar amount of money to Wednesday night.

“It would be great for the Hospice if we could smash £500 and I hope I can give that amount of money to the fundraiser on Monday morning.”

DONATE to support the team taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks and help the The Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract.
