“Upon hearing of the loss, Men’s Captain, Aldo Campbell spearheaded a fundraiser in support of the Family’s request for donations to be made to P.A.L.S. in Mr. Leigh’s honor.

“Mr. Campbell took it upon himself to asked current and past members of the club if they would like to make a donation, to show support to Tyler and honor the memory of a TRFC club member. Mr. Campbell was able to raise a total of $500.00 from club members, which was in turn matched by the TRFC committee to create a $1000.00 donation.”

Club President Brian Desmond said, “Family is the core of Teachers Rugby Club. When we lose a member, we are all impacted. Alan’s passing was a significant loss not only for the club, but even more so for our young club member Tyler and his family.

“We wanted to show our support to the family and assist them in their request for donations to P.A.L.S. Alan would have been pleased with the generosity of our members and to see us all come together as a club to support one of our own.”

    On behalf of my family, we are very grateful and touched by the generous donation made to P.A.L.S. in honour of my father, Alan Leigh, by Teachers RFC.

    Teachers RFC have been a part of our extended family starting with my father being one of the founding members, then with my husband, Justin playing with during the ‘90s and now our son Tyler in his second season with the Club. Looking forward to the day when Aiden joins too.

    Thank you very much to Aldo, Brian and all TRFC members, both past and present, who contributed to this worthy charity in honour of my dad.
