Nandos Saracens St Albans Takeover

On Tuesday 21st February, the Saracens players once again took to Nando’s St Albans to cook and serve up the world famous PERi PERi chicken.

The evening was a fantastic fundraiser for the Foundation, raising £4,000 to go towards continuing our great work on our projects across North London and Hertfordshire, with guests able to bid on some fantastic prizes and meet their favourite players.

One happy customer, James, said ‘I would like to say thank you to you, your team and the Saracens players for putting on last night's Nandos Takeover, it was another enjoyable evening and good fun’.

North London Half Marathon

Our fantastic North London Half Marathon runners had a hugely successful day on Sunday 12th March. Having fundraised over £3,000 for the Foundation they all successfully completed the 13.1 mile course from Wembley to Allianz Park before returning to Wembley to cross the greatest finish line in the world, inside Wembley stadium.

Our very own Emily Neilan came in the top 20 ladies and many of our runners had sub 2 hour times! We are hugely impressed with all our runners and would like to thank them all for their support of the Foundation!

London Marathon

Our London marathon places are now filled. This year 7 runners will be running to raise awareness and funds for the Foundation as they take on the famous 26.2 miles around London. If you would like to support the runners on the day at various cheer points please let us know and we can send information out closer to race day itself.

Upcoming events

We are very excited to reveal that this year we will be launching our very first cycling event in conjunction with Radial. The ride will leave Exeter on Friday 23rd June and over 3 days see you make your way back to Allianz Park stopping off at various rugby clubs along the way. Each night will feature social events with guests from within the world of rugby making this a truly unique experience. Whether you are a complete beginner or a cycling fanatic, this challenge will cater for all abilities across the 3 days with a huge welcome back party hosted at Allianz Park for all cyclists and their family and friends.
