Welcome to Jodie and Tom's International sponsorship page :-)
We are trying to raise 30,000 pounds by cycling 30,000 kilometres.
That is just 1 pound for every kilometre of our journey !!
For our International charity we want to raise £15,000 for the TAG Rugby Trust.
Who are TAG Rugby Trust?
The Tag Rugby Trust is a rugby based charity that was formed in 2002. It exists to help improve the lives of children here in the UK, but mainly in some of the poorest regions of the world. We currently work with orphanages and government schools in India, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Mexico and Romania using the game of Tag Rugby as our vehicle. We fund our tours through volunteers who pay to join the adventure and who work closely with the children in a coaching capacity. Almost without exception our volunteers say that the tour is a life changing experience for them.
We know that we make a difference to the lives, not only of the children we coach, but also the volunteers and friends of the Trust. We are passionate rugby people and we know the power it has to break down barriers and to create life long friendships. Above all, we believe that these positive experiences should be not only for the developed world but to growing “rugby nations” who don’t currently have the resources or opportunity to introduce children to the game.
Thanks to everyone who have supported us !
