Some of England’s Six Nations stars are supporting the fundraising campaign in honour of an amateur rugby player who tragically died after collapsing on the pitch.
Shawnton de Four left behind a wife and 14-month-old twins following his death, which occurred as the 34-year-old represented his rugby club Old Emanuel.
Chris Robshaw, Maro Itoje and Jamie George are among those who have come together to raise over £20,000 towards a £30,000 target for the Shawnton de Four Dependants’ Fund.
Please help Shawnton de Four’s young family where you can. Any help will be greatly appreciated. #RugbyFamily
