Fans support Seb and club charity

Figure image
Derby Day was also Seb Goold Trust Day at Welford Road on Saturday, with Leicester Tigers welcoming Seb and his family and friends as part of the Trust's official charity day.

The Seb Goold Trust is an official club charity this season and Seb and his family were able to share in Derby Day with the Tigers.
Two years ago Seb’s life was changed for ever when he fell from a coach on his return from a rugby tournament. His injuries meant he had an above-the-knee amputation and more than 30 operations, but he has shown immense bravery in his recovery and is now both a beneficiary and ambassador for the Matt Hampson Foundation which supports young people seriously injured through sport or other acitivies.
Seb and twin brother Ben, who were celebrating their birthday with friends and family at Welford Road, delivered the matchball ahead of kick-off between Tigers and Northampton Saints, and after receiving a big reception from a 24,000-strong crowd they also provided the final signal from the touchline for referee JP Doyle to get the game under way.
The Seb Goold Trust have set up an online petition to support their campaign for safer coach travel and more than 1,500 supporters took the opportunity to sign up on Saturday. You can show your support by clicking here.
