A superb story is in the making with a local shopkeeper who represents the spirit of the event to perfection.

Alain, a grocer in Thenay, a charming village near Pontlevoy, is providing his own financial support for the 1st World Schools Rugby Tournament.

Alain understands that this unique global event is a way of getting the word out about the Val-de-Loire and has therefore decided to support the RHC.  If, like him, you’d like to make a gesture, go to the website.
