Wasps Legends raise £100,000 for their upcoming future Main Grant

Wasps Legends raise £100,000 for their upcoming future Main Grant, Cardiff Foundation “Fit and Fed” Project and The Change Foundation.

Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation, after 2 years of Covid delays, finally held their 5th ‘Wasps Legends Rugby Golf & Cycle Classic’ in La Manga in June 2022 sponsored by Deepbridge Capital LLP.

Since its inception, the Wasps Legends Rugby Golf Classic has brought together Rugby and other sporting legends to play in a two-day golf tournament to raise money for charitable projects close to the hearts Wasps Legends community.

Wasps Legends Giselle Mather, Ken Moss, Chris Braithwaite, Mark Rogers, Nicky Robinson, Peter Scrivener, Gen Glover, Sol N’Jie, Rob Lozowski, Damian Cronin, Graham Childs were joined by other Legends of the game, including Simon Halliday, Geordan Murphy, Leon Llyod, Jamie Ringer, Ceri Sweeny and Michael Dods to name a few. We were also pleased to welcome back football legend Liverpool ex-striker Neil Mellor who was adopted by the Cardiff massive! Our Wasps Coaching team of Lee Blackett, Richard Blaze, Pete Atkinson and Dave Bassett also attended, which was a huge highlight for our guests. The sporting stars entertained all the teams, which boasted caps from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the British and Irish Lions and the Barbarians. 

Teams were also treated to three charity dinners, which all contributed to the fundraising over the weekend, which raised over £100,000. This puts the total fundraising amount over the past five years at over £500,000, which is an incredible achievement for all involved.

The money raised will benefit the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation’s Main Grant recipient charities which will be voted on this year as well as many small grants. This year the Rugby Golf Classic has supported Cardiff Foundation’s “Fit to Fed” project and we would like to thank Tom Shanklin and all the teams from Wales who attended for their support this year.
