Simon Barugh, a long term IPF fundraiser has just completed a remarkable 300km trek through Spain. The trek was called ‘Camino de Santiago Primitivo’ which means the Prime/first path to Santiago. The trek started in the Spanish city of Oviedo and after 12 days of relentless trekking these endurance warriors arrived in the beautiful city of Santiago de Compestelo.

Playing 26 matches across the UK in one long weekend, the Essex Bishops' Ruggerthon event is hoping to set a world record and raise funds for IPF.

The IPF brought another highlight into an increasingly busy schedule for Blackburn RFC teenager George Claxton when he was a guest at the England v South Africa QBE International at Twickenham.

As part of the RFU Injured Players Foundation’s work to prevent injuries in the game, funds were made available to supply first aid kits and injury strapping kits to clubs at league level 9 or below free of charge.
