Get involved

The first significant contribution to RU was made in August 2009 by the Bishop's Stortford Rugby Club.  Having hosted a team of India boys from in and around Kolkata in 2008 in conjunction with the charity Touraid the club wanted to do something to support the team and children like them on their return home.  The generous contribution will go a long way to getting some of the initial schemes off the ground.

Involvement in RU can take many forms, from one-off donations to regular contributions and club fundraising events.  Rugby Uncle will aim to direct money raised for the benefit of the players and their futures.

We have projects waiting for support within disadvantaged communities in Mumbai, Bangalore and Haryana – please contact us for more information.
