A multi-function rugby pitch has been set up at the PLK Tai Tong Holiday Camp in Yuen Long/Tin Shui Wei thanks to the joint fundraising efforts of the FCC Charity Fund, Po Leung Kuk, Macquarie Foundation, Savills and the Rugby Union. Most of the low-income families and new immigrants live in the Yuen Long area. This pitch will be used as training ground for the children living in the area.
So far, more than 3,500 children from the PLK system engaged in rugby training. The kids seem to love the game because apart from the physical training, they are also learning about respecting the coaches, teamwork and communication with each other.
