Through ATLAS the members of the "Heavies" at Richmond Rugby Club are sponsoring a feeding programme for children at Masi Rugby Club in the Masiphumele Township south of Cape Town.

While on tour in South Africa the Richmond Heavies and 1st XV team learned about the very difficult circumstances of children in the township and resolved to help in an ongoing way.

This fund was set up for the Richmond players and members, but they would welcome support from the wider rugby family should they wish to contribute.

In June 2018 the RFU squad visited the project during their summer test series. 

Our About Us video features the children of Masi RFC talking about gang crime and shootings where they live.
