The need for a proactive, hands on, approach to customer support and health and safety has always been something at the forefront of our minds here at Edwin Doran Sports Tours. Responding appropriately to unforeseen incidents and protecting our customers and schools is part and parcel of this.

On Sunday 19th February a team of Edwin Doran staff took on the challenge of the Hampton Court Half Marathon.
The group were running in aid of Team George. A charity set up to support a young pupil of Stamford School who was injured playing Rugby on a sports tour in Cape Town.
George Robinson is in Year 13 at Stamford School....But on July 27th 2015, George's life changed forever...
During a rugby match against DF Malan School, in Cape Town, whilst on his school rugby tour, George incurred a serious spinal cord injury in a tackle. The injury has been life changing as it caused a transection of his spinal cord. A year on since the injury, George and his family have come to terms with the very real fact that he requires long-term personal care and support.
In July 2016, 44 students and 6 teachers from Parkhouse School, Newbury, departed on a 2 week sports tour of South Africa.
Combining their football, rugby and netball teams, this was one of our most memorabl tours of the summer, exemplifying just how perfect South Africa is for accommodating multi-sports tours, exceeding expectations of students, teachers and parents alike.
Each month we'll be taking a walk down memory lane, as we recite one of our essential tour experiences in our new 'Edwin Doran On Tour' blog series.
Digging deep into our tour archive which spans over 43 years of leading sports tours for thousands of schools across the globe, we'll be recounting some of the fondest memories from both students and teachers alike, and reliving those priceless moments.
