HOW WE HELP
"I was very fortunate to play the sport I love for many years but have also seen first-hand the effect severe injury can have on a person’s life. The work Hearts + Balls is doing is incredible and I encourage you to support in any way you can."
Rugby brings immense pleasure and a sense of community to millions of people, but occasionally, like many other sports, it brings tragedy instead.
Hearts + Balls was conceived in 1999 when a player from the Lismore Rugby Club in Edinburgh suffered a serious spinal injury that left him paralysed. Having run a highly successful appeal, Lismore decided to widen its support to cover other players impacted by serious injury or illness. Thus, Hearts + Balls came into being with the aim of ‘helping rugby help its own’.
