A MESSAGE FROM ROBBIE MCROBBIE, OUR CEO

It’s been an exciting few weeks for our Community Foundation with the launch of 2 great new initiatives in Refugee Rugby and the Po Leung Kuk Buddy Rugby programmes, showing once again that rugby is truly a “game for all” and can help break down barriers and build friendship and understanding.
We also marked International Sign Language Day with the launch of the rugby sign language video dictionary, a pioneering project led by our friends from Chinese University, and our Deaf Rugby players enjoyed a training session down at the Societe Generale Rugby World Cup Fanzone with one of the greatest ever Olympians and Laureus Academy Member Daley Thompson! This was just one of a whole series of Foundation Fanzone activities that will continue through until the final on 2nd November…and it’s a great spot to enjoy all the games live on a giant screen! Finally, October is traditionally “Pink Rugby” month, and the rugby community will be doing our bit to raise awareness and funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation. Enjoy the World Cup action!
