Having been invited to an IRFU Charitable Trust event in Dublin recently I was reminded of the Brotherhood, Camaraderie and pride that playing, being part of a team, a club,  actually holds for us all.

I was touched by the commitment displayed by those great,  now retired, British and Irish Lions players who un-selfishly  gave up their time to promote and support this charity which, TBH, I wasn’t aware of.  Now it’s time for me to recognise support and promote the charity.

Thank you for Just Giving.

About the charity

The IRFU Charitable Trust supports seriously injured rugby players who have suffered catastrophic injury including severe spinal injury leaving them paralysed and in need of round the clock care, serious head injuries or other life changing injuries. The Trust maintains regular contact with each injured player and their families. We help with locomotory expenses, specialised equipment (such as lifting equipment, beds, or wheelchairs), home alterations, medical expenses, nursing and caring costs, motor vehicles etc. This is not an exhaustive list but it gives an indication of the kind of help provided by the Trust. Over the past few years the average payment for assistance has amounted to about €300,000 per annum. There are 36 players in Ireland supported by the Trust in this way. To fund this assistance the Trust relies upon regular substantial grants from the IRFU itself, together with generous donations and gifts. Thank you for your support, we really appreciate it.
