Nancy Tweddle Foundation supports inspirational charity
Through our Nancy Tweddle Foundation we have pledged our support to an inspirational charity that fundraises to help improve the lives of thousands of underprivileged children in Asia.
The Fat Boy Tens (10s) Charity Golf and Rugby Tournament is a major annual event that raises “significant funds” to pay for “medical missions”, including feeding programmes, which help impoverished youngsters.
This fabulous charity also supports the development of local grass-roots rugby, including in the Philippines, and has plans in the pipeline to extend its reach further across South East Asia later this year.
The charity and both tournaments, which will be held this September, garner significant and widespread international support.
Its 2017 event was attended by 18 rugby teams from a host of countries that included the UK, Hong Kong, USA, Singapore, Korea and Papua New Guinea, and the golf event featured 132 players.
Our CEO Mark Tweddle said: “Yvonne and I discovered this charity on a recent visit to Hong Kong and we were so inspired on hearing about the help that its fundraising gives to thousands of underprivileged children we were delighted to become a sponsor.
“Our Nancy Tweddle Foundation was set up to work with projects, both local and international, to make a positive difference to people’s lives and this is a shining example of that. We are proud to be one of its sponsors.”

The tournament is hosted by Hong Kong social rugby team The Pot Bellied Pigs, who also take part in the event.
A Pot Bellied Pigs’ spokesman said: “We really appreciate Jupiter Group’s help and great support for our charitable efforts at the upcoming Fat Boy Tens’ Charity Golf tournament (Sept 7) and the Rugby Tens tournament (Sept 8).
“We look forward to working with Jupiter in the weeks, and months, ahead.”
