Barnes RFC donate kit to Zimbiru Primary School

TRT Zimbabwe have fantastic projects and programmes happeneing week in week out up and down the country. So its fantastic when we are able to connect them together. In April this year, Barnes RFC chairman, Michael Whitfield, participated in a Tour to Victoria Falls and donated a kit that he requested to be passed on to a school that could put it to good use. That school turned out to be reigning national U-14 Girls contact champions Zimbiru Primary School from Domboshawa.

There are so many cities, towns and villages throughout Zimbabwe who have really embraced the Tag Rugby Trust community club model and its associated programmes. Whilst in Zimbabwe on a planning trip, TRT Chairman Martin Hansford, took time to visit Zimbiru Primary School in Domboshawa to meet teachers and players, see the real output from previous years community projects and see some of the scope that exists for future projects.

Whilst there, Martin presented them with a playing kit donated by Michael Whitfield of Barnes RFC which was given to TRT on the Atlas Foundation Tour to Zimbabwe earlier in 2018. Zimbiru Headmaster, school teachers and players were all thrilled to bits and very grateful to receive the strip.
