Battle of the Heart and Mind’ is a Guinness World record attempt for the longest game of touch rugby. The current record stands at 27 hours, we are aiming for 30 hours of non stop rugby!

The event is to raise funds and awareness for The Danny Jones DEFIB Fund and Andy’s Man Club with the aim of raising enough funds for 5 DEFIBS in the Hull and surrounding areas and to secure the positive movement of Andy’s Man Club for several years to come. The event will be played on the weekend of 9th and 10th of June at the Hull University Sports Centre.

During the weekend of the event we aim to raise awareness of both charities and the importance of Mental and Physical health from a young age by hosting 8 under 11’s and under 12’s Hull and District youth games on the pitches next to the event, all playing under the ‘Battle of the Heart and Mind’ banner.

In addition to this event, we are running a Heart Screening day through the Danny Jones DEFIB Fund to screen all players to ensure their safety in taking part in the event, but this is also an ideal way to promote heart health in our local community. I would like you to be screened.

The heart screening day will be held at Flex Health, 4B Newland Science Park, Hull HU67TQ (on Hull University Campus) on Sunday 13th May between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm.

Additionally we will be hosting a raffle stand with signed sports memorabilia, a refreshment stand, both to raise further funds for both charities. We will also have an Andy’s Man Club stand and a stand for the Danny Jones DEFIB Fund to give out information to those attending. We will have both founders of their respective charities in attendance in Lizzie Jones (Danny Jones Fund) and Luke Ambler (Andy’s Man Club) along with the local media outlet, Calender, supporting this event.
