The start of our story…..

Gloucester Rugby is proud of its charitable and community achievements, which benefit many people across Gloucestershire and this season we are extending our links further to The Fold in South Africa

Gary Little, Community Manager, said ‘We currently deliver a whole range of community project’s that aim to succeed in making a difference to the lives of young people, throughout Gloucestershire. We do this by inspiring and motivating them through the ‘power of rugby’ and a number of educational, social and sporting activities. This season, The Fold, an orphanage in the Limpopo region of South Africa has been selected as one of Gloucester Rugby’s chosen charities and a planned number of community fundraising events will be held throughout the season. ‘The community projects we run in Gloucestershire continue to be our main focus, however, this season we wanted to do more and something a bit different. So we decided to extend our community work beyond the boundaries of the local area by establishing a link with The Fold in South Africa.’ We recently became aware of the work of The Fold, an orphanage set up just a couple of years ago. It provides a place for children who have been rescued from despairing situations. The aim of The Fold is “to create a loving and secure environment where children have hope for the future.” For more information on The Fold please visit http://www.thefold-sa.org/index.html ‘We plan to visit The Fold next year with a group of students from Gloucestershire, bringing together young people from different cultures and backgrounds for a week of mutual educational and undertstanding experiences’ Image
