OLD Saltleians rugby coach Gez Mandell has taken ‘local community’ to the extreme as he prepares to sacrifice two week’s holiday to coach Tag Rugby in Orrissa, India.
Together with fellow Old Salt, Colin Gardner, he is joining the Tag Rugby Development Trust - a unique charity that introduces primary school children in developing countries to Tag Rugby.
The volunteer tours build a positive legacy through local involvement and UK support and consequently Gez will be organising a number of fund raising events to maximise the benefit.
Gez works tirelessly for the club and was instrumental in successfully introducing girls tag rugby at Old Salts RFC.
He recently introduced local primary school children to the joys of Tag Rugby at their end of term party held at the club grounds.
