Charities – ‘Where your support goes’
London Stock Exchange Group Foundation
All proceeds raised from the tournament will be donated to the LSEG Foundation, which is involved in funding projects throughout the world where the Group is active and focuses on helping young and disadvantaged people to reach their full potential through the development of life skills and business enterprise.
The foundation is currently supporting 3 partner charities for 2012-2014:
- Friendship Works (UK)
- Habitat for Humanity – “HFH” (Sri Lanka)
- In-presa (Italy)
In addition to the LSEG Foundation, the event is supporting All Schools, an initiative developed by the RFU to increase the amount of rugby in schools, and through it promote the core values of the Rugby Football Foundation – Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship.
The aim is to create a legacy for 1 million children by taking rugby to 750 state secondary schools, providing an outlet with the aim of making school life happier and healthier, reducing anti-social behaviour, enhancing learning and increasing self-esteem for students. We are hoping to support this incredible legacy by asking that teams and sponsors also consider making a donation to this cause.
