Brighton & Hove Sea Serpents RFC to ‘take a dip’ on New Year’s Day to fundraise for Union Cup

Graham Robson December 22, 2022

The Brighton & Hove Sea Serpents RFC is the only rugby club in Sussex specifically set up to give LGBTQ+ individuals a way into the sport.

In April, the Union Cup is being held in Birmingham for all rugby clubs with a specific LGBTQ+ status and the Sea Serpents are planning to send a squad of 25 players to this tournament. A minibus, hire and fuel (and parking) will cost the Club about £500 so they are hoping to cover this through a sponsored swim on New Year’s Day.

Brighton & Hove Sea Serpents RFC say: “It’ll blast the cobwebs away and start to prepare us on the journey to Birmingham. Why not support us as we use the left over fat from our Christmas roast potatoes to give ourselves some insulation from the cold?

“We will live stream the cold dip at 1pm on New Year’s Day!”
