Randall and Purdy boost Churngold charity fundraiser

Churngold, player sponsors of Harry Randall and Henry Purdy, have used the Bears duo's attacking prowess to raise £2,000 to help buy advanced technology at Southmead Hospital.

For every point scored by both Randall and Purdy since the restart, the Bristol-based civil engineering company, have donated £100 towards the hospital's bid to raise £750k for an advanced robotic digital microscope, used for advanced brain surgery.

Harry Randall’s remarkable score in the Challenge Cup final after just 15 seconds, together with his late consolation against Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership play-off semi-final have taken the total raised to £1,500, after Purdy’s try against Gloucester at the end of August had kicked things off.

This total was rounded up to £2,000 by Churngold, who chose Southmead Hospital Charity as their charity of the year for 2020, fundraising to support the purchase of the technology for the neurosurgery department at North Bristol NHS Trust.

Southmead Hospital Charity funds pioneering research and equipment as well as funding new buildings and projects to transform spaces. They also care for the people that care for you, supporting projects that develop and support staff to help deliver exceptional healthcare. They find solutions to providing innovative healthcare that has an impact today and for tomorrows generation.

Andrew Brown, Churngold Managing Director, said: “Congratulations to both Churngold sponsored players, Harry Randall and Henry Purdy for helping us to raise much need funds for the brain tumour surgery equipment at Southmead Hospital.

“At £100 for each point scored from when the season restarted, the guys have raised £1500 by scoring three tries. However, as we are sure they would have scored more tries had they played Exeter this weekend, we will raise it to £2000 for such a worthy cause.

“Thanks to all the Bears for a great season. Each try is great, but Harry’s try after 15 seconds in the European Challenge Cup Final was extra special and had us jumping about and cheering like mad things.”
