At Alnwick Rugby Club’s final match of the season last weekend, people raising funds for a Northumberland rugby player were out in force.
Katherine Lingard, Shi Shi Ord, Emma Fairbairn and Sarah Gray, among others, baked cakes to raise more than £600 for the #StayStrongStu campaign.
They came together specially for the occasion as Stu used to play against Alnwick with his team Tynedale RFC.
Stu’s mum Celia said : “Support for Stay Strong Stu has mushroomed with events taking place and people coming together to support it on an unprecedented scale. We can’t thank everyone enough.”
