MEMBERS of Newtown Rugby Club, will be riding 100 miles on a static turbo trainer to raise funds for Powys and mid-Wales health services.

Luke Orehawa, junior chairman, and Bob Jones, the under 9s coach, are joining former Wales Skipper Ryan Jones and 97 others for a 100 mile turbo trainer cycle challenge on Saturday.

Luke and Bob are raising money for Powys Teaching Health Board to support the funding for the coronavirus fight.

They will saddle up and start riding at 8am on Saturday from the 'discomfort' of their own homes, and expect it to take five to six hours.

Luke said: "We will be joining ex-Wales Rugby Captain Ryan Jones and 97 others across the country cycling in their own homes to support the NHS.

"Every donation counts, and supporting the services in Powys ensures the rural community get the support they need.

"Newtown RFC prides itself on supporting each other as a team, family, club and community. It's this spirit that has brought us both to the challenge to support those on the front line, and those reliant on the services within Powys."
