This weekend (28-30th April), all Aviva Premiership matches including Bath Rugby’s game against Gloucester Rugby will be dedicated to Restart Rugby, the official charity of the Rugby Players’ Association. Together were aiming to raise £10,000 to help players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.
We’re also raising awareness for the #LiftTheWeight campaign which addresses mental health issues amongst players. 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health issue each year. Rugby players are no exception. Restart Rugby supports players and their families during their most difficult times through a 24/7 counselling service.
“We are all in this together – for the game, our clubs and our countries. Please support our players and help Restart Rugby to Lift the Weight.” Kane Palma-Newport,RPA Player Representative for Bath Rugby
