During April 2012, Oliver Grove, a professional rugby player with London Scottish RFC and the youngest son of Earlplace Chairman Lawrence, visited India to spend time with the street children of Calcutta at Future Hope School. During his period at the school, Oli coached rugby and other sports and was involved in the classroom.
The children at Future Hope School do not benefit from having team sports kit and have to train in whatever might be available to them at any particular time.
Unbelievably, one boy in the Under 16 Group was wearing an Earlplace sponsored Birmingham & Solihull Rugby Club playing jersey.
Oli played for Birmingham & Solihull RFC during the 2010-12 season
