Accompanied by players Dan Koster and Tom Channon, Cornish Pirates’ Community Engagement Manager Sam Teasdale recently led a successful ‘SurviveAlive’ event at Great Work Mine near Helston.
Over 40 young participants enjoyed an all-inclusive afternoon of rugby when the fun and interactive games provided a highly competitive occasion. Also, throughout, everyone commendably displayed rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship.
It was back in 1997 that Derek Thomas, MP for West Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly, set up SurviveAlive, which is an outdoor adventure project for young people from across West Cornwall.
Following this most recent event, Derek commented:
It was great to see members of the Cornish Pirates at SurviveAlive this summer. This was a first in 22 years of running the adventure camp and the young people really enjoyed the activities.
On a great afternoon the Pirates presence certainly had the full attention of everyone who took part, and a number of campers told me how much they enjoyed the session. It was a big hit!
