Rob Burrow’s father fumes at government decision not to support campaign

Rob Burrow’s father, Geoff, has taken to Twitter to outline his disgust at the government decision not to support his and Rob’s Campaign to EndMND in the latest spending review.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak revealed his new budget for the financial season, but Burrow’s campaign to raise £50 million over five years in government spending has been rejected.

It’s a major kick in the teeth for Burrow and his supporters, which includes former Leeds Rhinos teammate Kevin Sinfield.

Sinfield ran seven marathons in seven days raising £3 million for MND charities, going the extra mile for his former teammate ever since his diagnosis and the two have provided hope to so many people with the platform the two have created.

The ex-Rhinos captai also revealed his latest fundraiser and plans to run 100 miles in 24 hours which is the equivalent of four marathons back-to-back with no sleep. He’ll be going from Leicester Tigers’ Welford Road Stadium all the way to Leeds’ Emerald Headingley Stadium.

But, all of those efforts have fallen on deaf ears in Downing Street, much to the chagrin of Rob and his family, as well as his mighty support.

Geoff Burrow wrote: “I am absolutely disgusted to hear that the Government Spending Review has decided NOT to support the Campaign to EndMND, and the requested £50 million over 5 years ! All the so called indicated “Support” for the extra funding comes to NOTHING !! PLEASE RECONSIDER AND HELP MY SON.”
