On visiting Delhi, our project sponsor, Alex Murphy, asked for donations of kit to give to the children and coaches there. The picture above show only a small element of the donations received including kit, balls, boots, bags, pumps and bibs. Over 1000 items were given from the RFU women’s team and premiership club Leicester Tigers, through generous companies, to individuals. The challenge now was for Alex and ATLAS’s Sally Pettipher to carry as much as possible on board their flights, with the rest following later as ca.
Our thanks to: British Airways Community, Sabena Moylan and Rachel Middleton from Virgin, Nat West, Rugby Football Union, Richard Austin, Simon Smedley of HGV Direct, John Morris, Tris at RAM Rugby, Jug Johal of Asian Sports Foundation, The Rob Stevenson Trust, Nick Scott, Gareth Thomas, John Rouse, Vanessa Gray, Distinction, Duraflex, Rob Warburton, Patrick Stephenson and Scott Clarke at Leicester Tigers.
The kit we carry will change lives.
RAM help again
Thanks again to Ram Rugby for donating a set of women’s shorts which will go straight to Kenya and the Nyumbani village where Maggie Alphonsi is championing a project with women and girls. “The donation is indeed God sent!! Truly I can’t thank you enough for the timing is perfect. “
