So what started off as a bit of Facebook banter has turned into reality, because in reality I am the poor relative!
And with all the will in the world there is just no way I can afford to pay for Gabriel to go on rugby tour to Australia.
The tour sounds fantastic and will be amazing for Gabriel’s self-development and pretty much an experience of a lifetime.
As previously mentioned there are some incredibly kind and generous people out there who have offered to support me – I’m overwhelmed by this.
I thought I’d do it properly through a funding website to keep everything open and transparent.
The cost of the tour is in the region of £3,600 – I would assume more like £4k but who knows – and will take place in July/August 2019.
For anyone who has offered to support me, now’s your chance!
And for anyone else – I appreciate that this (thankfully) isn’t a plea for support due to any illness or some other tragedy – it is purely personal – but an amazing opportunity for a young lad who loves rugby. And is pretty good at it too.
Thanks guys. I appreciate your support more than you will ever know.
