Jamie Heaslip volunteers with The Umbrella Foundation Nepal

Irish Rugby Player and long time Umbrella supporter, Jamie Heaslip, volunteers with The Umbrella Foundation Nepal:

We showed all the houses some footage of Jamie in action so that they could appreciate the game of rugby and the volunteer they were about to meet…after seeing a few scrums, tries and tackles it wasn’t clear if they thought he was impressive or mad! The general reaction was “oh so danger!!!”

He entered Umbrella to huge cheers from all the Umbrella kids and staff! Within his first 20 minutes he was thrown right into the thick of things and he joined the kid’s ‘Strong Man Competition’ and took on some of our girls in a Tug of War!!!

The kids were been blown away by him, they’re fascinated by his huge arms and his “dangerous” sport!

We’re delighted to welcome Jamie Heaslip to Umbrella and to finally introduce him to the kids he’s been helping for so long!
