 Rugby Stars Help Youngsters with learning difficulties

European rugby champions Saracens are at the forefront of a unique scheme to help young people with learning disabilities.

The Sarries Foundation has  teamed up with sponsors  Alan Day Volkswagen holding touch rugby sessions every week for youngsters between the ages of 11-20-years-old.

They train  for two hours  every week at the Aviva Premiership rugby ground Allianz Park in Hendon, North London.

The popular touch rugby sessions, which are run by  Thomas Gamage,  won the Premiership Rugby BreakThru Award in a glittering ceremony at the House of Commons.

The aim is to improve the participants health, mental wellbeing and to create opportunities in the community.
