WLCF Small Grant awarded to Muscle Help Foundation
  • Wasps Legends donate £2,500 to the Muscle Help Foundation.
  • Donation will help deliver 'Muscle Dreams' for children and young people.

Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation, the past players network of Wasps, men and women, amateur and professional announced today that they have issued a small grant award of £2,500 to The Muscle Help Foundation.

The Muscle Help Foundation is a small specialist family charity operating nationally, to deliver more highly personalised, transformational experiences in the UK called ‘Muscle Dreams’ for children and young people with the life-limiting, muscle wasting disease muscular dystrophy and allied neuromuscular conditions.

Peter Scrivener, Trustee of Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation said of the announcement: "This is the first year that we, as a charitable foundation, have been able to award small grants to charities close to our hearts. Supporting the Muscle Help Foundation means that we can help a child or young person suffering with muscular dystrophy enjoy a Dream experience as we saw the benefit of this when we met some of them at Twickenham for the England v France 6Nations game and the excitement and enjoyment they experienced during the day.”

Michael McGrath, Founder and CEO of The Muscle Help Foundation said of the donation: "It means a great deal to us to receive a donation from the Wasps Legends Charitable Foundation. We are small charity and helping children and young people and their families enjoy positive experiences is key to why we do what we do. The improved confidence, greater self-esteem and an increased sense of hopefulness that they feel from our Muscle Dream experiences and programmes can be life changing.

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.
