Durrants has been a supporter of Southwold Rugby Club for many years, providing sponsorship funds for various team kits and training equipment, but we didn’t realise just how far our support could reach until now!
Around six years ago, Roger Felton of Southwold Rugby Club took his 16-year old twins on a trip to Kolkata, India where they were involved with The Jungle Crows, a Rugby charity who have been supporting and educating ‘street kids’ since 2004. Their time in India had a huge impact on them and Roger has stayed in touch with Jungle Crows founder, Paul Walsh MBE, since.
Recently, Southwold Rugby Club pulled together to gather their old season kit and donated over sixty youth rugby shirts to the Jungle Crows. Paul Walsh said about the donation “Absolutely delighted Southwold stash has managed to make it to the Jungle Crows in Kolkata. What a great present to cheer everyone up in these difficult times. We are loving shiny new gear and giving kit a new home.”
We’re overwhelmed with this fabulous gesture and delighted that the old season kit will be put to such good use in Kolkata.
