Boots and balls for Africa
In April I’m off with English rugby legend and fellow Lion, Jason Leonard to Zimbabwe and Botswana to deliver boots and balls to kids over there.
Raising money for
The Atlas Foundation
Like me, Jason did a lot of international travelling during his playing career and we both saw enormous poverty in the places we visited. Rugby gave us so much and we both want to give back where we can.
Jason founded a charity called The Atlas Foundation a couple of years ago, and they’re already doing brilliant work. Bringing kids together through rugby they provide food, medicine and education as well as the opportunities, friendship and value that only rugby brings.
The charity mantra is "to give kids things that can't be sold or stolen"
This trek is not all hardship and deprivation, alongside some major driving challenges in the African bush, we will see the best of these countries and meet the champions of the projects, large smiles guaranteed!
I’ve pledged to raise £10k to fund this work, I'm hoping you'll help me meet my target before April. It’s a team effort and I won’t get over the line without you.
Thanks in advance
