Rugby Aid is a rugby union organisation that is supported by World Rugby, formally known as the International Rugby Board (IRB), to aid in global charities of different causes. In 2005, the first match took place to raise money for the United Nations World Food Programme to support its work aiding victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. While in 2011, saw a repeat of the fixture in aid of Help for Heroes, and in 2015, an England vs Rest of the World XV match took place in aid of the same charity. In 2015, confectionery brand Mentos was unveiled as an official sponsor of the event.[1]
