A lovely quote from England Rugby full back Mike Brown:mike brown 2 small

"Splash is a brilliant organisation working with young people in Wiltshire who are facing challenges in their lives. I think it’s fantastic that Splash is again running a rugby project at my old club Salisbury RFC this Summer. Splash works to build young people’s self-confidence, social and team work skills as well as helping them to make positive choices about their lives – such similar values to those we aspire to in rugby."

Look out for our Summer rugby project at Salisbury on 17/18 Aug
