Support Restart Rugby and help #LiftTheWeight
This weekend (28-30th April), all Aviva Premiership matches including Saracens’ game against Bristol Rugby will be dedicated to Restart Rugby, the official charity of the Rugby Players’ Association.
Together were aiming to raise over £10,000 to help players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.
We’re also raising awareness for the #LiftTheWeight campaign which addresses mental health issues amongst players. 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year. Rugby players are no exception. Restart Rugby supports players and their families during their most difficult times through a 24/7 counselling service.
“Restart Rugby provides a lifeline to players when faced with serious injury, illness or hardship. Please show your support and help Lift The Weight.” George Kruis, RPA Player Representative for Saracens
