I am grateful to have the support of the following organisations and individuals:
Mark Tonga Trust – Directors Bruce Corlett, Andrew Chalk and Mel Morson.
Hearts in Union – Hearts in Union is a charity that is all about assisting those players who have suffered severe spinal injury during a rugby game. Rugby is a wonderful game played by people who enjoy the spirit of “mateship” and “fair play”. Unfortunately, some players through a freak accident have their lives changed forever. Spinal injuries place a physical, emotional and financial strain on the player for the rest of their lives. Hearts in Union aim to ensure those severely injured players who are suffering financial hardship receive the best possible support throughout their lives.
