To help assist Jacob and his family during this time

Jacob Fifita-Tovo is a year 11 student at Feilding High School who is a member of the 3rd xv. Jacob was involved in an unlucky accident when an opposition players leg connected with his head/neck resulting in a spinal injury.

Jacob has three other siblings with his parents Mario and Lucy, running their own contracting business. On Sunday 22 July Jacob was airlifted to Christchurch and ICU and he has now been transferred to Burwood Hospital in. It is unclear how long he will be there for.

Jacob and his family are being supported by the NZ Rugby Foundation, who work with players and families in these situations.

As a school and community we want to help the family out as much as we can. This may be a long road ahead for Jacob and his family. We want to help minimise the financial burden on the family as best we can. Any amount will help and this is our time to come together as a school and community.

Funds will be held in a dedicated bank account nominated by the Feilding High School Rugby Club. These funds will be used to support the family as required. The Health system and ACC are covering all medical costs but there will be a big burden on the family whilst they get through this challenge.
