Bucket Collection Achieves £921 For Charity

When Sale Sharks heard of All4Inclusion director Scott Whitney’s charity challenge in January following an email from his Mum, they immediately offered to allow Scott bucket collect at a future match.

This was shared with Andrea Edwards one of the directors of Move as Scott finished his challenge prior to Scott knowing. Move is an online business and personal development networking group that Scott regularly attends. He was meeting a lot of the members in person for the first time as part of a weekly netwalking session that they do at West Kirby Marina.

Andrea helped Scott raise bucket shakers for the event from within the Move Community allowing more people to meet for the first time. As is often the case, everything was not as it seemed. People pulling out the day before and replacements drafted in. Scott even received a call from Silvio Cecchini who saw in a group WhatsApp chat that someone had dropped out on the day to tell him he is on his way to help. Silvio and a number of the bucket collectors travelled for over an hour to assist. The day itself went smoothly with everyone mucking in to raise money for an excellent cause. The Brain Charity helps people with all neurological conditions. Based in Liverpool they help people up and down the country with a variety of different services including counselling for not only the person with the condition but also their family and friends.

Former England World Cup Winner Jason Robinson came over to speak with Scott prior to everyone arriving and made a contribution to the buckets. Suzy Couper managed to tackle Tom Curry on his way to a meet and greet session with younger (and older) fans. Tom didn’t disappoint the queue, staying out a lot longer than his allotted time to ensure no one was left out.

Josh Beaumont made time to speak to both Scott and Andrea early on in the evening and not long after he left the 6’7 player was seen running back over having retrieved his wallet before going off to enjoy his night. Previously a lover of sampling different beers, Scott and Will Cliff were deep in a discussion surrounding Bach 95, a beer brand that the Sale scrum-half co-founded. Scott had a taste of the reduced-calorie lager before having a can of the alcohol-free version. The dilemma, is how to wheel a wheelchair with two cans of beer in your hands?

Solution – In his over 200 career appearances, Cliff normally is driving a pack forward but now he is pushing All4Inclusion director Scott back to his friends.

Across the evening the Sale Sharks fans contributed a whopping £921, so pleased to help a good cause and the rest to satisfy the singing and dancing Mark Waldron (the other Move director).

Generous fans attending the match donated £921 to the buckets!
