Figure image
Matt Hampson visited the Tigers Rugby Camp at Stamford School this week to say thank you for the players' fundraising efforts.

Young players on Tigers Rugby Camps help raise money for the Matt Hampson Foundation through the sale of wristbands.

Hampson visited the Stamford School camp to thank the players for their efforts in raising more than £1,500 during the week, and to share his life story and take part in a Q&A.

Tommy Cawston, of the Matt Hampson Foundation, said: "Stamford School is to local to Matt and he loves to see the young players enjoying the camps and being part of the Tigers Family and hopefully they learn a bit about the Foundation.

"The players have helped us raise thousands of the pounds over the last few years, it's so important to the Foundation and we are grateful for all of their efforts."

Brett Deacon and Ryan Lamb also visited the Stamford School camp to take part in a Q&A and pass on their expert tips.

Mathew Tait and Harry Thacker visited Tigers Rugby Camp at Lichfield RFC, the biggest Rugby Camp of the summer so far.

It was a family affair for Academy product Thacker with his dad Troy, the former Tigers hooker, the head coach and brother Dan the lead rugby development officer at the camp.

Academy products Tom Price and Javiah Pohe were at Swaffham RFC for a Q&A while Fraser Balmain and Lucas Guillaume visited the camp at Diss RFC.

Tigers’ summer rugby camps continue next week at Kesteven RFC in Grantham, Lincolnshire, Bablake School in Coventry and a residential camp at Bishop Burton College.
