In 5 days, the total raised was a phenomenal â0¬10,800 for the Matt Hampson Trust.
Matt Hampson, is a Leicester player who suffered a serious neck injury last March, whilst training. He currently cannot breathe unaided and is paralysed from the neck down, and it was decided last September, that he would be the designated charity for our Pre-match Lunch.
Added to the â0¬1,000 raised as part of being our designated Charity for the Pre-Match Lunch, Ger Quinn on the left presented a cheque for â0¬11,800 (Â£7,680) to John Griffiths on behalf of the Matt Hampson Trust.
The Munster Rugby Supporters Club would like to thank its most sporting and giving members for such overwhelming support for a most deserving cause which has touched the hearts of all rugby supporters. We hope that Matt continues to succeed on his very challenging road to regaining independence.
Also, during the Pre-Match Lunch, a cheque for â0¬2,000 was presented to Mick Quinn, of the IRFU Charitable Trust, as a result of commemorative Pin Badges sold to members during the season.
