Tenth Annual Foundation Rugby Dinner Huge Success!

The tenth annual Matt Hampson Foundation Rugby dinner held during the Six Nations was another incredible success and attended by Eddie Jones and members of his England Squad.

It looks like the night will have raised close to £250,000 including £70,000 of pledges towards our hydrotherapy pool fund.

Hosted expertly by Austin Healey, guests were treated to q and a’s with Eddie Jones, George Ford, George Kruis and World Cup winners Mike Tindall, Matt Dawson, Will Greenwood and Paul Grayson.

Two films were shown to highlight the incredible impact the Get Busy Living Centre is having on our beneficiaries many of whom were in attendance on the night.

Auctioneer Jonny Gould was on fine form bringing in over £100,000 on the main auction and an incredible £70,000 in pledges for the hydrotherapy pool project.

Matt commented “It was another amazing night, great to see so many friends and people who have continuously backed us over the years. Hard to believe it’s the tenth one, but for me it was the best one yet! Huge thanks to Eddie Jones and his England coaches and players for attending on the night”
