Wasps FC Grant

Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation are delighted to have raised £9,000 for Wasps FC, which will be used to provide support to those who are unable to play rugby due to financial hardship. In line with our vision of changing lives through the spirit of Rugby, we truly believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of our game, and with the help of Wasps FC we have been able to make that a reality for as many people as possible. Richard Green Wasps FC Chairman added “Every penny or pound that the Legends so generously donate helps put another young player in boots at the club, and so often it's a player that might not have been able to do so without their support”.

This support was made available because of our Wasps Women’s Founders Dinner, where we celebrated remarkable individuals who have used their skills and values to break boundaries on and beyond the pitch. We welcomed over 80 guests at 28°-50° by Night, hosted by the fantastic Danielle “Nolli” Waterman!

This grant is part of our continued commitment in supporting Wasps FC and the hugely impressive work they do for amateur rugby in West London. This is further shown in our collaboration at the back end of 2023, when we provided a £4,000 grant to support their partnership with the mental health charity, Brave Mind, which provides educational training, and raises awareness for mental health amongst all players, parents, officials, volunteers, and club members. The programme is currently ongoing and Richard Green Wasps FC Chairman added “We provide sport to all we can reach. The added funding for our work with Brave Minds adds valuable resource to areas that might be less visible but so important to our community”.

On the 16th May, we will be inducting a Wasps FC player who has come through every age group at Wasps FC and is still playing, into the Wasps Legends Hall of Fame for the first time, where they will join the pantheon of Wasps greats. This unmissable event is open to the entire Wasps community, giving fans the opportunity to engage with current & former players, as well as other like-minded individuals.

We look forward to continuing our support of Wasps FC and working closely together to benefit the Wasps and wider Rugby community over the coming months and years.
