Michael Sargent On the 25th August myself and 45 other players will be attempting to break a Guinness world record, which will consist of playing 30 hours of a full contact Rugby match. The purpose of this gruelling challenge is to help raise life changing funds in aid of the School of Hard Knocks.

The School of Hard Knocks is a ground breaking social inclusion charity using rugby and sport to enable pupils at risk of exclusion or low educational attainment to take responsibility for the choices they are making and improve their long-term prospects.

The programme has now been running in schools since 2015 and has a proven track record. 94% of all the pupils we have worked with have remained in mainstream education with attendance improving by an average of 50% and punctuality by a huge 66%! Incredibly 100% of students we have worked with have sat at least 5 GCSE's with nearly half of these achieving A* - C grades.

Having first hand experience over the last two years with the children your donations will benefit I cannot express how invaluable your support is to the cause and how all donations, big or small, will make a huge difference!
