Without doubt you will have seen the devastating impact the earthquake has had on Turkey and Syria over the last couple of days.
Burntwood RUFC shares the anguish and heartache of the Turkish and Syrian people. The tragedy feels slightly closer to home as one of the affected areas, Adana, is home town to 1st XV player and long time clubman Halil Gozukucuk. Hal is a Turkish Rugby international who has also played for fellow Staffordshire clubs Cannock and Walsall. Our thoughts are with Halil and the people affected.
Burntwood RUFC has set up a Just Giving page to raise much needed funds to help support the area and would welcome contributions from players, members and officials across the rugby community in Staffordshire to give as generously as possible.
