Pope appeals for charity support

Dear Rugby Supporter, 

Last year I decided to set up the Brent Pope Rugby Legends Foundation in association with respected Irish home-building charity Habitat for Humanity Ireland. 

The reason?  Rugby has been my life, and I want to unite rugby people in an effort to give something positive back and change lives for the better.  

In June of this year, I visited Zambia with former international rugby player Malcolm O’Kelly.  We partnered with families to build homes and coached local kids in the finer art of Irish rugby.  Zambia is a beautiful country, where communities are full of friendly faces and extreme humility, yet those same smiling faces and proud communities are experiencing hardships we cannot imagine. 

I would absolutely love YOU to join us on this life changing project.  Over the weeklong trip next June, some of Ireland’s best known rugby legends will captain five teams of volunteers to build five houses in partnership with families in need. Unlike any other trip, the legends and the volunteers will live in the local communities and experience what day to day life is like.  

You will also get the opportunity to play a legendary match with our legends and the local community in Zambia and get pointers and tips on how to improve your game!  

Irish rugby greats such as Girvan Dempsey, Bernard Jackman, Paddy Johns, Alan Quinlan, Frankie Sheahan, Paul Wallace, Brian Spillane, Jeremy Davidson, Trevor Brennan and many more have already signed up to join members of the rugby loving public in what will be an experience that will change their outlook on life forever. 

Will you join the Legends in 2012? Sign up to be part of this incredible journey today! 

Yours sincerely, 

Brent Pope
