Bracken to help out charity rugby team
Former Saracens star Kyran Bracken is to help raise cash for two kid’s charities through Bristol based rugby outfit Impact Barbarians.
The former Saracens and England scrum half will lend his expertise to coaching staff at the club as part of a drive to raise much needed funds for the Jessie May Trust and Children’s Hospice South West.
Now in its second year the Impact Barbarians scheme aims to bring more people into the game by providing a tough training and coaching regime for those who with little or no experience in Rugby Union.
Impact Barbarians organisers Olly Slym said: “It is fantastic that we have managed to bring in a player of such quality to help us out. Doubtless his insight and expertise will be invaluable to those who have not played rugby to such a high standard as Kyran.”
All money taken on the day will be divided between the Jessie May Trust which helps provide home respite care for parents of terminally ill children and Children’s Hospice South West.
Last year the event raised £6,500 but the team behind the project hopes to break the £10,000 barrier this year.
