    Weʼve raised £4,685 to support grass roots rugby in Botswana. The clubs and kids out there love the game, but don’t have access to the kit they need. #kit4africa

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The right jersey. Proper shorts and socks. Studded boots. A fitted gum shield. Wearing the right kit makes a big difference. But not every player has the kit they need.

    Since rugby is a family (a global family) we’re doing what we can to help kids who don’t have access to the kit we do.

    There’s a lot of justgiving request out there. We all get them. But this one comes with a story. A rugby story. And it’s one we’re keen to support.

    North Dorset Rugby Club is changing its kit provider. So we’re going to buy the old kit from the shop and send it to kids in Botswana. The kids love the game. But they’re playing in t-shirts and flimsy shorts that are instantly torn.

    The Botswana RFU is on board. They’ve identified the most disadvantaged clubs and schools, and will distribute the kit to those who need it most.

    There’s more.

    Since most of us have old kit at home (stuff we no longer wear or our kids have outgrown) you can donate that kit, too. When we’ve raised enough, we’ll bundle the shop kit and the old jerseys, shorts, socks and boots you donate and send the whole lot to Africa.

    We need to raise £7,500. It’s an ambitious target. But with your support we’re confident we can raise enough money to support this worthwhile cause.

    Timing is tight. We need to raise the money by 7 July 2017. So please donate today.

    Thanks so much for supporting the club. And for helping us support this worthwhile cause.

      We have just past the £5,000 mark! There were a number of donations that came in over night from various sources. I'm hopefully that we will reach all our goal by close of play tomorrow. Great support from across the #greentide
