Northampton Saints supports Restart Rugby Weekend 2018
Tuesday, April 10, 2018
Northampton Saints are proud to announce that at this weekend at our game against Leicester Tigers, we’ll be showing our support for Restart Rugby – the charity which supports professional players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.
As part of Restart Rugby Weekend 2018, we’re aiming to help raise £10,000 for the charity’s life-transforming work supporting players such as Ed Jackson who was just 28 when a horrific accident left him virtually paralysed from the neck down.
“Since my accident, the support I have received from Restart Rugby has been incredible. It has taken all the stress out of everything. I thought I would be stuck in hospital for six months or a year, but thanks to the charity’s direct support, I've been able to come home, attack my rehab and learn to walk again.” Ed Jackson
