By this time you have probably been exposed to those rubber wristbands that are currently all the rage in charity fundraiser merchandise (I’ve been snapped by a breaking one and it bloody hurt so I don’t like them much, but that’s beside the point).
Well St Edmund’s College (aka Eddies) have commissioned their own personalised ones and are selling them to all the students and giving the proceeds to a particular charity.
The one my contact was wearing was tricolour with blue, white (the two Eddies colours) and pink sections. He told me they also come in solids of those three colours (and that he had wanted a pink one but was unable to get it).
And the text? EDDIES (heart) supports breast cancer research.
Nice choice of charity for an all boys rugby school.
