Rugby brings immense pleasure and a sense of community to millions of people. But, occasionally, it brings tragedy instead just like many other sports. Though it happens very rarely, injuries can be serious and life-changing. Hearts and Balls aims to ensure that, in times of need those connected with rugby are supported by the wider rugby community. Hearts and Balls has donated over £250.000 to rugby players and their families since 1999. Through advice and advocacy, we also help them to raise money from other sources. Our recent support includes- New wheelchairs for players with spinal injuries Specialist mattresses for players with spinal injuries Adapting the home and garden of a spinally injured player Car insurance for a specialist vehicle of a spinally injured player The costs of an additional carer to accompany a spinally injured player on holiday Mortgage interest payments for the wife and young children of a player who died from a heart problem when playing rugby Specialist IT equipment for a spinally injured players returning to work Legal costs for the setting up of a trust for an injured player
