The Silver Hippo's already fund a social inclusion and feeding project for townships in South Africa. We have witnessed first hand how this project works and the difference it makes to incredible young people living in terrible conditions and circumstances.
I owe so much to rugby and this is a small way to make a meaningful difference and because Northy won’t stop pestering me!
In August 2020 I will be swimming the channel. Many thanks for supporting me, following me and donating to my charitable causes. It will be a long swim but I'm looking forward to it!
To provide Rugby kit to the impoverished children in the townships of South Africa
Contacted by Front Row Club, and Josh was keen to get involved in our BBBC Challenge."Can definitely cut my hair would love to help out. And regarding fundraising as I’m in Scotland and an England supporter I’m tempted to cycle the equivalent distance of Murrayfield to Twickenham - 420 miles around my area."
Contacted by Front Row Club, and Sean was keen to get involved in our BBBC Challenge."Yeah im keen. I need a hair and beard cut so might as well help you raise a few quid at the same time!”
Contacted by Front Row Club, and Barry was keen to get involved in our BBBC Challenge."My kids won’t like this as I've always had a beard.Add me to your list and I'll be happy to fund raise on behalf of the Atlas projects."
My love of rugby has allowed me to grow as a person and meet some wonderful people. Its time to give back!
Nick "LFK" Bracken, Paul "Snapper" Cowley, Tom "Ceefax" Dahri, Mo "Stinker" Fitzgerald, Roy "Wimpy" Strickland and other Hippos yet to be others yet to be Shanghaied are putting our fat and aged bodies through this to help support a wonderful cause.
I will be running the 100 kilometer Race to the Stones challenge with Ben Nicholson and friends in loving memory of Anita, Alex and Annabel Nicholson.
Great initiative in support of the Atlas Foundation's mission to improve the lives of the poorest people on earth through the power of sport and rugby in particular.
