Rugby aces boost children with needs

Picture caption: The two sides

Players from East London Rugby Club showed their caring side when they raised £350 to help youngsters with special educational needs (SEN).

Forty players from the club at the Memorial Ground in West Ham staged a St George’s Day fund-raising match between England and the Rest of the World.
All those who took part paid to play. The money raised will buy equipment for the club’s Sunday morning coaching sessions for SEN children, run by club captain Rob Herbert and occupational therapist and child counsellor Ciara Baxter.
Ciara, who captains East London Ladies, said: “Rugby enables young people to develop motor, coordination and social skills. It’s a great fit with children with needs and disabilities. Sessions are fun and tailored to individual capabilities.”
The free SEN sessions, supported by Newham Council, take place on Sundays from 10-11.30am for youngsters aged six to 16 of all abilities. For details email:
