London Irish HITZ pupils support the Brittle Bone Society
22 June 2017
The London Irish HITZ pupils will be fundraising for the Brittle Bone Society from 11am to 2pm this Friday 23 June near to the JD shop on Broad Street, Reading.
The charity is very close to the London Irish HITZ pupils' hearts because one of the pupils' cousin suffers from Osteogenesis imperfecta, also known as brittle bone disease or Lobstein syndrome. Osteogenesis imperfecta is a congenital bone disorder characterized by brittle bones that are prone to fracture.
"This is a great charity that is close to the London Irish HITZ programme because one of the pupils on the course has a cousin with brittle bone disease," said Ainsley Campbell, HITZ Officer.
"Some of the HITZ pupils, in particular Lewis Cox, have worked hard to organise this event and it will be a great chance for the HITZ pupils to give something back to the community that they live in as well as trying to help raise money for a good cause."
Digger will be coming along too. If you are free, pop down and help raise some money.
