Players and coaches visited Bedford and Milton Keynes Hospitals over the Easter weekend to deliver chocolate eggs and toys to the Children’s Wards.
We visited the Riverbank Ward in Bedford on Good Friday (30th March) and the Children’s Unit at Milton Keynes on Saturday morning (31st March) to make the special deliveries, which had been donated by the club.
Speaking on behalf of the Club afterwards, Michael Dilley said:
“We always enjoy delivering eggs to our local hospitals and are really pleased to carry on the tradition this year.
“The staff on the wards do an incredible job, and we’re also really happy to be able to show our appreciation in this way”.
The Ouse Valley Eagles were formed in 2013 with the aim of becoming one of the leading lights for American Football in the UK.
The 2018 season is almost upon us but it is never too late to join one of our four teams:
- Ouse Valley Eagles (Adult Kitted, age 18+)
- Bedford Blackhawks (Adult Flag, age 16+)
- Bedford Blackhawks (Youth Contact, U17)
- Milton Keynes Redwings (Youth Contact, U17)
Despite being a relatively new Club, the Eagles are made up of an experienced team of coaching and backroom staff, with more players registering to join each month.
The goal set by our founding committee was to have a club here still winning games in 25 years time, and for our children to be able to play for the same team we did.
That remains the goal today, and we are working every day to make the club bigger and stronger. To register your interest in joining any of the teams under the Ouse Valley banner please complete the form below:
