MEMBERS of St Neots Rugby Club showed their softer side over the weekend as they raised more than £3,600 for a seven-year-old girl who has a rare condition that has caused her to have two strokes.

The club organised a three-day extravaganza of beer, music, barbecue and the beautiful oval-ball game to raise money for Molly Moore, who lives with her family in Offord Cluny.

Molly suffered a second stroke last August, aged six, and had to undergo six months of specialist treatment before she could return home. She went back to Offord Primary School before Christmas, but she still needs a wheelchair to get around and is working with a therapist to improve her speech.

Her parents, Katie and Jason, need thousands of pounds to re-fit their home and pay for her ongoing treatment.
