    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.


    Rugby season may be over in UK, but in South Africa it is just beginning. I know, as do those of you involved in youth team sports , how many community and social benefits there to being involved in team sports. My nephew Rob was involved in establishing Touch Rugby in some of the poorest communities . They have much enthusiasm and talent but lack basic support, such as transport to tournaments, decent team kits, even feeding teams on an away match needs resources. The local team is from Ebenezer School in Duncan Village . I have been there and seen for myself how hard ordinary life is. This school comes under the Buffalo City Municipality Touch Association. Just a little from you can make a big difference for them

        My visits to South Africa have made me aware of how important such initiatives are and I hope Ingrid and Dave get the support they need to continue this in memory of Rob

        It sounds a great cause and close to Rob's passions; but still terribly sad.
