England rugby legend Jason Leonard appealed to fans everywhere this week to put their hands in their pockets for a paralysed Hammersmith and Fulham player.
The prop, who won a record 114 caps for his country, threw his considerable weight behind the west London club's Give 2 For Stu campaign for Stuart Mangan.
The 25-year-old broke his neck in a freak accident in a second-team game last April, leaving him with no feeling below the neck, reliant on a ventilator and requiring around the clock care for the rest of his life.
Mangan is expected to leave the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore shortly.
However, with no significant improvement expected in his condition, World Cup winner Leonard wants everyone to give £2 to the Stuart Mangan Appeal, of which he is patron.
"Rugby union is a family," said Leonard. "We pride ourselves on our camaraderie and our willingness to look after each other.
"We need every single person involved in rugby - players, coaches, officials and supporters - to donate just £2.
"It's less than the cost of a post-match pint, but it will make a huge difference to Stuart's life in the inevitable difficult times ahead."
Anyone wishing to give to the campaign can send a cheque, made payable to 'S Mangan Appeal' to: Hammersmith & Fulham RFC - Stuart Mangan Appeal, 17 Wheatsheaf Lane, London SW6 6LS.
On the pitch, H&F went down 12-11 defeat at home to Tabard, beaten by a last-minute penalty.
It was tough them, having fought back from 6-0 down to lead through a Mark Sweeting try and Scott Richards and Nathan Gee penalties.
