Small Grant Update: Restart Rugby - Ed Jackson
In February 2018, the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation awarded a small grant to Restart Rugby to fund intensive rehabilitation and physiotherapy support for Ed Jackson. Ed suffered a career ending neck injury in April 2017, which left him virtually paralysed from the neck down.

On 14th April 2018, at the Wasps v Worcester game, Ed took the opportunity to meet some of the Trustees and Wasps Legends to say a personal thank you for the support he received from the charitable foundation.

The whole of the Wasps legends squad epitomised everything rugby stands for - community spirit, great banter, competition on the pitch and the making of some lasting friendships.
