Leicester Tigers were delighted to welcome representatives of the official club charities for the opening home game of the season against Bath at Welford Road on Sunday.
The club will this year recognise four Official Charity Partners, teaming up with Hope Against Cancer, Warning Zone, Kidney Care Appeal and the Matt Hampson Foundation.
Representatives from each of the charities joined Tigers for an official presentation on the Welford Road pitch at half-time in Sunday’s match and received a huge reception when they were introduced to the 22,500-strong crowd.
Scott Clarke, head of community at Tigers, said: “Each season at Leicester Tigers we aim to work closely with charities to help support their causes as well as help to spread awareness of issues within the community.
“It’s fantastic to welcome the charities as our official partners as well as continue our close working relationship with the team at The Matt Hampson Foundation.
“Throughout the season, we’ll be running a number of events for fans to get involved in and, like every year, our fans will no doubt show their support generously.”
The Matt Hampson Foundation wishes to say a huge thank you to Leicester Tigers continued support of Hambo and the charity!
