Woodstock youngster selected for Touch Rugby World Cup needs R50K to get to Aus

Tauhir Theys hails from Woodstock in Cape Town, and has been selected for the South African mixed team for the Touch Rugby World Cup, taking place towards the end of April in Coffs Harbour, Australia.

However, each player needs to find his own funding, and there's a mountain to climb for each one of them, especially Tauhir, as he comes from a family of seven.

He is described as well-liked by all his teammates and is said to be one of our most talented upcoming players.

To assist him in getting the necessary funds, his team captain Gareth Hayden has set up a crowdfunding page on indiegogo, where one can pledge as little as $1 to help him reach his dream. Their goal is to raise $5000 or R50 000.

Listen to Kieno Kammies' interview with Gareth Hayden and Tauhir Theys here:

Richard Harding of Law Unlocked heard the interview and was touched by it. He discussed the matter with his business partner, and they have decided to contribute 50% of all their contract sales between now and the deadline towards helping Tauhir achieve his goal. Their company specialises in drawing up customised legal contracts and was also featured on CapeTalk's Business Accelerator with Pavlo Phitidis.
