raised of £5,000 target by 24 supporters

    Funded on Monday, 13th May 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Welcome to my justgiving page.

    I want to help raise money for the IRFU Charitable Trust who do an amazing job for injured rugby players. I want to push my body and mind to the limit by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on the 14th of January 2019. I will be joined by former Irish internationals, Shane Byrne, Marcus Horan and Stephen Ferris. We will do everything possible to summit Kilimanjaro at 5895m, and we hope to raise a lot of money from our expedition for such a great cause.

    Ii feel fortunate to have played the game I love for so long before hanging up the boots. There are others though less fortunate, who have suffered life changing injuries that have occured through the game of Rugby Football Union and every penny raised from my trek will go to the charity. With your support we can make a difference.

    Thank you all.

    Lets hope the knees and ankles hold up!

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
