I've been asked if I would help to promote a fundraising dinner that his being held for the Matt Hampson Trust on Wednesday 3 March at the Battersea Evolution. I am very happy to do so as this is a great charity.

In case you haven’t heard about Matt Hampson, he was a very promising England U21 prop who suffered a catastrophic neck injury in 2005. The accident happened when the England U21 team were preparing for their Six Nations match against Scotland. In what he described as a freak accident, a scrum collapsed and dislocated his neck.
