RUFC - Walk for the Millers

RUFC - Walk for the Millers

Rotherham United Community Officer, Mark Hitchens is organising a walk to try and raise funds for the club.

The Administrator, Jeremy Bleazard, has asked for money to keep the club going until a new buyer is installed. Mark Hitchens is organising a walk to our last away game of the season at Mansfield in order to raise the much needed cash for the club and also to raise awareness of the plight of clubs in the lower leagues. Mark, who organised a walk to Huddersfield, two years ago to raise money for the Millers told the Official Site, 'That walk to Huddersfield was one of the proudest, and hardest, days of my life. It was a privilage to walk alongside so many passionate Rotherham United supporters.

'This walk will not just be about raising money to keep our club going until the end of the season, it will also be about showing football fans around the country how much our club means to us and how much the smaller clubs are struggling.

'I will be looking to the businesses of Rotherham to sponsor me personally and I really hope I can get their backing.

'Rotherham needs a football club and this is our chance to show how much it means to us all.'

Anyone walking to Mansfield on Saturday will be able to have their breakfast first thanks to Steve and Dean Curtis owners of Millmoor Cafe who have said they will open the cafe, which is across from the ground, at 4am.

Speaking to the Official Site, Steve said, 'We hope the walk will bring in some much needed sponsorship money and we wanted to do our little bit to help.'

Organiser of the walk, Mark Hitchens has appealed for a first aider to be available on the walk on Saturday. If you are a first aider but didn't want to walk then transport will be available.

DBC Food Services have kindly donated drinks for the people who are walking to Mansfield tomorrow.

Marketing Manager, David Bryant-Pugh, told the Official Site, 'We are delighted to help the loyal supporters of Rotherham United and providing them with free drinks in their efforts to raise funds for the club is the least we can do. We wish them, and the club, the very best of luck.'
