With lockdown allowing more focus on off field work. The Harrogate Fire Ants have teamed up with Auckland based charity The Butterfly Trust who deliver projects on the islands of Vanuatu we came across them via our namesake link with Port Vila Fire Ants. We aim to deliver funding to build a community toilet block and hand washing facilities alongside other sanitisation projects. You can find out more about the project on our club fundraising link below.

Thank you 😀. The trustees of the charity are back on the way for 6 months to the islands just as another cyclone is developing hopefully it won't get to category 5 fingers crossed however there are so many remote areas without running water or toilets, all help us greatly appreciated and I will keep you updated with progress

Yeah although not their first sport they are ideally positioned regionally wise regarding Rugby League and the work going on in Port Vila at the moment is fantastic, like anything it takes time to build up a club they have unique challenges but certainly can be challenging the smaller Pacific sides soon
