To celebrate my 60th birthday I am walking between the rugby clubs I have been lucky to represent. Its a few!!!

Starting at Sale on April 18th, the plan is to walk to West Yorkshire and visit Cleckheaton, Roundhay (now Leeds) and Woodhouse Grove School, then down to Rotherham onto Loughborough Students and finish at Leicester Tigers on April 26th.

The total distance will be approximately 180 miles.

Through my time at these clubs, I have been fortunate enough to meet so many characters and friends that have shaped my life.

However not all of us have been that fortunate! To sustain a life changing injury as a youngster setting off in the sport you love must be a very difficult thing to deal with.

The Matt Hampson Foundation inspires and supports young people seriously injured through sport through its unique Get Busy Living centre in rural Leicestershire. The centre provides expert physiotherapy, specialist personal training, support, mentoring and advice to people suffering a life-changing injury.

The centre’s doors were opened in 2018 by Founder and ex-England and Leicester Tigers rugby player Matt Hampson, who himself experienced a life-changing injury in 2005.

Any donations are massively appreciated. Thank you in advance, Steve.
