"The purpose and principle of the RugbyWorks programme struck a chord in me immediately and has resonated ever since. The concept of giving young people a chance, at a crucial stage in their lives, when they’re in danger of losing their opportunity to realise their potential and succeed, is fundamental to any fulfilled life. The RugbyWorks programme works tirelessly to that end and it is immensely rewarding to be a part of the positive difference RugbyWorks makes."
