The latest from the Wasps Legends community
Welcome to our new website, we do hope you enjoy using it. The brief for our new site was to update our branding, optimise it for use across multiple platforms and most importantly, make navigating to key areas of the website as easy as possible. A further key benefit of our new site is the control we have over our content which will have a positive effect over the regularity of new posts and updates going forward. Much of your favourite areas of the website have been moved across, including the Legends database which covers the Men, Woman, Teams and it now also houses our Hall of Fame winners. The Event section has been redesigned and will now be easier to see what’s new, coming up and how to access tickets to our stellar event roster. We have also updated our impact page with greater transparency as to how the valuable funds we raise, assist those most in need within our Wasps and wider rugby community. In addition, we have amalgamated memberships into our Get Involved page and made the grant giving application process a little clearer and easier to access than before. Whilst exciting, please do bear with us as we get up to speed with using it and integrating it more fully into the way Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation work. There will be amends as we go along and there will also be additions to some of the existing pages. Should you have any feedback, please do feel free to share it. We would like to thank Andrew Burgess and Equimedia for their assistance on building this new platform, one which we are excited to build on as we move forward. Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation
Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation held their 6th ‘Wasps Legends Rugby Golf Classic’ in La Manga in June sponsored by Deepbridge Capital LLP. Since its inception, the Wasps Legends Rugby Golf Classic has brought together Rugby and other sporting legends to play in a two-day golf tournament to raise money for charitable projects close to the hearts Wasps Legends community. Our celebrities, a mix of Wasps Legends and other legends of the game included Giselle Mather, Ken Moss, Chris Braithwaite, Peter Scrivener, Sol N’Jie, Rob Lozowski, Jason Turner, Jimmy Gopperth, Simon Shaw MBE, Joe Worsley MBE, Andy Gomarsall MBE, Lawrence Dallaglio OBE, Damian Hopley MBE and Jason Leonard OBE. We were also pleased to welcome back football legend Liverpool ex-striker Neil Mellor and Invictus Games Captain, Major Bernie Broad. The sporting stars entertained all the teams, which boasted caps from across the home nations as well as the British and Irish Lions and the Barbarians. Teams were also treated to three charity dinners, which all contributed to the fundraising over the weekend, which raised over £75,000. The money raised will benefit the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation’s grant recipient charities which will be voted on later this year. We want to thank our title sponsors, Deepbridge Capital LLP, for their continued support of the event. We would also like to thank our other sponsors, for which we are incredibly grateful for their ongoing generosity. This includes Elmsite Services, Red Industries, Buzzacott, Artel Scaffolding, Bates, Purple Ski, Skybound Services, Hadley Property Group, Stockford Anderson and HISL.
