Fans raise over £1000 for Argentina

Argentina Money

Fans, volunteers and skaters at MRDWC have raised over £1000 ($1700) for Argentina after hearing that the team’s funds had run out during the tournament.

El Pibe, the jammer who has won a legion of new fans, even had to sell one of the shirts he’s been playing in to buy food yesterday.

As word got round a red cowboy hat was passed around the audience towards the end of their game against Australia with people throwing in coins and notes galore.

At the last count they’d raised over £1081.07 (plus €43.20 and $20.45) in cash.

    This shows you how great a sport we all are a part of. No other sport would rally together all walks of life and do such a generous thing for another team. Makes me very proud to be part of the Roller Derby Family.

    One of the main reasons why our Team was unable to be fully rostered, its because of the economical issues we have in our country (1 U$S = 10 Argentinian Pesos!!).
    Even with this situation, argentinian derby people is always really supportive & a big family!! ♥
