A group of Old Brightonians who played rugby with Finley Winter will be taking on the Winter Fan Dance Challenge on 6 January 2024 to celebrate his life. They have renamed the challenge the “Winter Finn Dance” and are looking to raise money for the PAPYRUS charity in Finn's memory. 

The Fan Dance Race entails a 24km march up the Pen y Fan mountain in the Brecon Beacons with each person carrying 15kg load. The race represents the oldest Special Forces Selection test, and the OB team will be following the exact gruelling course used in the test. 

The team comprises: 

Patrick Mayhew (He. 2016-21)
Alex Pert (Ry. 2007-21)
Rob Ellis (Ha. 2019-21)
Toby Kircher (Ry. 2007-21)
Cam Kinross (Du. 2019-21)
Alex Hennah (Sc. 2016-21)
James Pavey (Al. 2014-21)
Josh Taylor (He. 2016-21)
Hugo Hughes (Sc. 2016-21)

Please support the team's incredible efforts and help them to reach their fundraising target.
