THANKS TO TNT THE IRB AND LV= SOS KIT AID SHOW SUPPORT FOR GRASSROOTS RUGBY IN MADAGASCAR

With Rugby very much alive and thriving in Madagascar the demand and enthusiasm for all things Rugby is high and the game in the African nation received another boost recently with the IRB and LV= SOS Kit Aid delivering a consignment of Rugby kit to the Fédération Malagasy de Rugby.

The delivery, which includes jerseys, shorts, socks and other essential gear, has been collected from schools and Rugby clubs in the UK and includes good quality second-hand items as well as new kit which is no longer wanted and was otherwise destined for landfill sites.

The donation gives the kit a new lease of life and will be distributed by the Union to clubs and schools in the country for the benefit of Rugby at all levels as part of the legacy and development programme around the Africa Cup.

John Broadfoot, Joint CEO of LV= SOS Kit Aid, said: "The delivery will help make a positive and tangible impact on young people's lives by giving Madagascan children of all abilities and backgrounds the chance to participate in Rugby. The simple boost to team spirit, pride and confidence that comes with a team wearing the same jerseys is something we can often take for granted and it is fantastic that the next generation of Rugby players in Madagascar will benefit from the experience."
