We are proud supporters of the Matt Hampson Foundation
We sponsored Derek Jelly, a former Leicester Tigers Prop Forward and winner of two European Rugby Cup medals among other accolades, in his London Marathon charity run seen here receiving the funds being donated.
The foundation can assist individuals by offering direct grants or by paying into existing and future funds to assist with equipment, technology or just every day expenses. They also assist organisations and institutions whose aims are similar to their own and who also provide relief and treatment to those who have suffered injuries as described above. Through Matt Hampson, the Foundation is also able to offer mentoring, friendship and education.
Very often a chat with somebody such as Matt who has been through it, ‘got the t-shirt’ and overcome many issues himself is the best assistance that injured people can get. Matt’s educational visits to schools and clubs provide understanding and can be extremely motivational to those who hear him talk about his experiences and his zest for life.
The aim of the Matt Hampson Foundation is to provide advice, support, relief and/or treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause, but in particular from participation in or training for any sport, sporting activity or other form of physical education or recreation.
The foundation mainly assist people who have received such injuries in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland but that does not preclude helping those in other parts of the world who need urgent assistance.
The day at Tigers was a big success and raised some good funds for the Foundation
Many thanks for your donation to Derek’s fund-raising for the marathon it is very much appreciated. We have put a story up on our new website.
