Having just received an update from Paul Walsh and the Jungle Crows in Kolkatta, I thought it was time I did a blog post on all things KHELO.
Paul sent me a link to a wonderful blog post written by a group of youngsters that had just visited them in Kolkata from Scotland. They were completing the service element of their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and it seems they had a great time. You can read all about it in their post here, and please do share this with your friends:
Paul also reported that their Winter Camp at Christmas was a huge success, with more than 370 children attending on Christmas morning – CLICK HERE – to see all the photos from that.

Expenses etc are available for the right person, but this really is a fantastic opportunity for a young rugby player to immerse themselves in a fabulous culture, with some beautiful people.

We – RuckinRugby – have now booked our exciting new 7s Rugby Team, the JCF Sevens for the 2015 Hartpury 7s Competition, so it’s all systems go! Alex the apprentice has been tapping up talent throughout the regular winter season here in Devon and we are confident of fielding a great mix.
The stash is in hand and we may even have some sponsors on board soon – watch this space!
