Sarries RFC Goes On Tour!
Sarrie’s RFC is a programme delivered by the Saracens Sport Foundation who aim to increase and sustain regular physical activity for young people with high functioning disabilities, by creating a disability touch rugby club.
The Club has been in full swing for two years and the programme has gone from strength to strength, we are currently 15 members and 8 volunteers. Sarrie’s RFC is dedicated to improving not only physical aspects of the members but also their social skills, which many young people with disabilities such as autism and ADHD struggle with.
With the incredible support of Alan Day Volkswagen the club is about to embark on an adventure, by taking the team on tour to Worcester. On the final day of the Premiership Rugby season the Club will follow the Premiership Champions, Saracens to Sixways Stadium where the Sarrie’s RFC will play a game of adaptive touch rugby against a similar group from the Worcester area.
Paul Tanner, (Alan Day Volkswagen) said “this will be a fantastic opportunity to round off the season by taking the team on the road and playing against another team!” Alan Day have recently agreed to fund the Sarrie’s RFC programme which without their support it would not be possible for the members to participate in weekly activity as well as travel to Sixways.
Tomas Gamage, (Saracens Sports Foundation) said “It has been another fantastic season for Sarrie’s RFC, our members have developed so much both on and off the pitch, this of course is not possible without the support of Paul and the rest of the Alan Day team.”
