Right.
Doing this.

Impotent rage is a waste of time and emotion. Let's turn this which I think is safe to say we're all extremely disappointed by into something positive.

For every minute Folau plays for us, I am going to donate 10p to the Albert Kennedy Trust: https://www.akt.org.uk/
According to The Albert Kennedy Trust, 24 percent of homeless young people identify as LGBT. Of those people, 77 percent believe that coming out to their parents was the main factor for their homelessness. This charity aims to help those people and last year they provided 6,075 nights of accommodation to vulnerable LGBT young people.

Each week*, I'll make a donation accordingly and hopefully we can do some good.
If anyone wants to join in, for one game, for a month, for the season - whatever - screenshot your donation receipt, post it on here and we'll try to keep a running total for the year. All very casual, dip in when you can. No pressure.

Will post something on the site later



* obviously if my situation changes and I lose my job or something, then I might not be able to. Cross that bridge if I ever reach it. Hope not.

Classy response, as expected. Nice one. And count me in too.

Ah, super. Share widely and see if we can get fans of other clubs to join in when their teams play us.

Dropped a note to the charity to tell them what we're doing and why. And Pink News ran a story about Folau signing, so I've been in touch with them too.

Will have to wait until the 10th of the month to see what my bank balance looks like, but I may be able to kick in a standing order. I am considering buying the whole team some rainbow laces for the Wigan game instead thoughbut.

Got some of those for myself. Nicely offset my faded red adidas Green Star.

Looks like we're up this week anyway. Let us know what you donate and I'll add it to the totaliser

80 minutes, £8. And I chucked in an extra quid for the try. Good work, Izzy!
