The Hackney 1000 was a great success. Players from the club were joined by members of the London Fields Triathlon Club, young people and volunteers from Hackney Quest and members of the local community in attempting to travel 1000km in one park on the day and support the brilliant children's charity. In total we raised £3500. Thank you to everyone that supported us (there's a proper thank you here). Film-maker and photographer Stuart York made this great film of the day, using music composed by young people at Hackney Quest. Enjoy. Hackney RFC will continue to support and fundraise with local charities throughout the upcoming season and beyond.
