Our bi-annual Summer Ball at Marston Trussell Hall will be on Saturday 6th July. The theme for this year’s Ball is a review of the Lions tour of Australia, the last match is that Saturday and a preview of the Ashes which start the following Thursday. We’ll have sporting celebrities from the world of Rugby and Cricket with interesting and funny Q&A sessions from both sports. The evening will be MC’d by George Chuter and Craig Newby.

One of the auction lots for #raise4matt that has kindly been donated by The Matt Hampson Foundation is to make that very dream a reality! On the 21st of April two star-studded sides take to the pitch at Welford Road. The sides are already made up of legends such as Robinson, Betson, Freddie Tuilagi and MArtin Johnson and with more and more household names set to join them.

Today i am writing to you on more of a personal note. I have chosen to take on and be a part of the Walk4Matt 2012. This involves walking well over 110 miles from Rugby to Twickenham all in aid of the fantastic cause that is The Matt Hampson Foundation.
Most of you that are involved in rugby in even the slightest way will have heard about the inspiration that is Matt Hampson. Matt suffered a severe spinal injury when taking party in an everyday training session with England Under 20 . The scrum collapsed on his neck trapping his spinal cord and paralysing him for the rest of his life from the neck down. One of the most poignant parts of Matt’s story was when he came around in the ambulance and pleaded with the paramedics not to cut off his England shirt. Since then, Matt has established the Matt Hampson Foundation and not only been able to ensure care for the rest of his life is paid for but get involved with other that have similar injuries.
