The Taranaki Community Rugby Trust (TCRT) is a registered charity and exists for the purpose of promoting community rugby. We are a unique charity in that we operate a successful dairy farming business to help generate a base of funds to support our cause.
Our belief is that it doesn’t matter your background, being involved in physical team sport is great for kids. It improves physical, mental and social well-being, health and fitness.
