    Weʼve raised £10,515 to support Manu Samoa players in light of the bankruptcy of the Samoan Rugby Union.

    Funded on Wednesday, 10th January 2018

    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 charity.

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

    Story

    Pacific Rugby Players Welfare is an independent not-for-profit organisation that supports professional and semi-professional players of Pacific Island heritage in the UK and Europe – enabling their ongoing success both on and off the field.

    Following the announcement that the Samoan rugby union is now bankrupt, we want to raise funds to ensure some form of payment for players in the Manu Samoa squad.

    Every penny raised by this fundraising activity will go direct to the players and their families.

    £150,000 equates to approximately £1 for every seat at Murrayfield and Twickenham which will be entertained by the squad members in the coming weeks.

      I’d personally like to thank more than 300 of you have helped raise over £10K for Manu Samoa players and families. Despite the ongoing challenges faced by Pacific and Tier 2 rugby teams, this proves that the core rugby values are alive and well! The page will remain open until Sunday the 2nd December after which all funds will be distributed directly to players. Faafetai tele lava and God bless!

      With the England vs Samoa match quickly approaching, Over 200 donations and £6K has now been pledged to support Manu Samoa players and families. Sadly, the current financial model sees Samoa and the Pacific Islands receive 0% of the gate takings. Thank you for helping us restore the balance. Dan

      This is the right thing to do. More than this there needs to be a review, a rehaul of the remuneration system. So-called tier1 & tier 2 categories are to maintain the status quo.
