On Friday 16th of February 2018, 3 Pillars Project were delighted to join Prince Harry and Rugby Legend, Jonny Wilkinson, at England Rugby's open training session in support of Try For Change. Preparing for their next Six Nations game, England Rugby were using the training day as an occasion to thank the rugby community for their continued support.
As one of the first eleven projects to be part-funded by the RFU and Comic Relief’s Try for Change, we were proud to be able to discuss our work in prisons in London and South East areas. Coaches Kaz and Mike spoke with Prince Harry, a fan of the sport and Patron of the Rugby Football Union, about the power of sport, values of rugby, positive role models, mentoring… and Coach Kaz’s massive thighs.
3 Pillars Project CEO, Mike Crofts, first met with Prince Harry almost two and a half years ago. The Prince shared with him his advice on how to make the idea of 3 Pillars Project into a reality. It was, therefore an incredible honour to be able to discuss our progress with the Prince and share with him our achievements in using excellence in sport, teamwork and leadership as a foundation for effective rehabilitation.
