Bula Boots was set up in 2018 to help provide rugby equipment to those in need out in Fiji. Inspired by the way Fijians play the game we thought it was time to give back to the island and encourage the development of the sport that provided us with so much enjoyment over the years.
The charity has been set up in the UK with the help of Ben Ryan, who coached Fiji to Olympic Gold in 2016 as well as winning the HSBC World Series with the team on two occasions. Former Fiji 7s Team Manager, Rob Kauvesi, has then kindly agreed to help distribute the kit to those villages most in need.
Initially the boots and other items will be sent to the Serua Province, which is one of the 14 provinces in Fiji. Their rugby team plays in Fiji’s B division competition and they
also have 10 clubs participating in their local club competition, with the majority of them being village teams.
Then, hopefully, once the scheme becomes more popular we will be able to expand in to other areas of the country as well.
If you would like to help out or your club would like to be involved then please get in touch via the form below. We are after the following items for donation for ages 8 -18:
Rugby/Football Boots – nice and clean if possible!
Trainers - good condition
Rugby shirts, shorts and training gear
Balls - sizes 3 to 5 in good condition
HOW IT WORKS
Get in touch with us using the form above.
Package up your items in a box (Max - 55cm x 55cm x 55cm)
Once full let us know and we will send you a label for you to stick on.
Then we will then arrange for it to be picked up. Too easy!
The kit will then be gathered together and shipped off to Fiji to be distributed.
Below are a few photos of the kit arriving in Fiji and being distributed. More to follow shortly.
