    Mini Rugby Donates Rugby Kit Items

    19 Nov 2021

    From our rugby field to Yours with love and goodwill
    To Cambodia and Laos and the Philippines

    Every rugby season has opening traditions. Part of the minis kick-off is donating old rugby kit to where it is needed and welcomed.

    Last year, Minis donated 888 items of used (but freshly laundered) rugby kit to ChildFund Vietnam, a charity connected with Laureus Sport for Good advancing rugby and sport among disadvantaged communities communities near Hanoi. Thanks to ever generous Club donors, both among minis and senior Rugby Sections, this season over 1,583 items of kit were donated, impacting not one but three charities:

    ChildFund (Cambodia), headquartered in Phnom Penh, is an international development organisation working to reduce poverty among children. They support hundreds of children in Svay Rieng Province, Kratie Province, and Battambang Province.

    In neighbouring Laos, the mission of the Lao Rugby Federation is for "all people to have the opportunity to participate in the sport of rugby". Football Club are proud to join Kowloon RFC who also connect with them.

    Christ the King Lutheran Church

    South of Hong Kong, in the sunny Philippines, there are few rugby connections. Nevertheless, Christ the King Lutheran Church, in rural Nueva Ecija province, agreed to distribute children's and adults' jerseys, shorts, and other rugby kit in communities where clothing needs can be pressing. No website, but our thanks to Rev Rustico Cortes for mobilising his small and passionate church.

    Special thanks must ring out to our friends DHL Hong Kong, lead coordinator Garry Kemp, and to Tom Wheeler on the Club side. DHL's generosity to ship hundreds of kgs to Cambodia and Laos anchors this goodwill. Thank you Garry and Tom for bringing that to life.

    At the front end, over three successive and long Sundays, thank you to Rosalina Natividad and Catriona Guy Ramsay for organising kit collection and laundering - with meticulous counting. Dave Stanton hoovered up donations of AFL, Aussie Rules rugby kit, including sports bags. Cameron McIntosh liberated dozens of senior jerseys.

    All the back end, thank you Chris Cooke for refereeing the packing crew, including Carol Wong, a U12 parent, Nick Grenham of U11s, whose son Lucian also helped collecting, Allen Schoolmaker and daughter Alyssa Schoolmaker and Natasha Hearder, from U14G rugby. All of you all: top job and thank you.
