Join us to celebrate the brilliant work our coaches do in the community for vulnerable children and young people around Bath. 

In Bath, one in five children live on the poverty line. Our aim at Bath Rugby Foundation is to provide all children with an equal opportunity to succeed in life. 

We're using Foundation Day to launch our monthly giving campaign, Lose the Labels.

Labels stick. But only if you let them. We want to break the cycle for disadvantaged children and level the opportunities offered to children in our community.

Foundation Day will highlight the poverty and deprivation that goes unseen in Bath, and give supporters the chance to donate to the cause. Hear more from those whose lives have been changed by Bath Rugby Foundation. 

What you'll find on the day:

Matchday raffle with some amazing prizes! You can even purchase your raffle tickets ahead of the day, here.

Meet Our Mascots

Leading the team out, we have some of our brilliant students and participants of Foundation programmes who will be taking to the pitch with the Bath Rugby team as they run out to a pack Recreation Ground. If you're at the game, please give them a huge cheer and make them feel at home!

To learn a little more about how we here at the Foundation help young people in and around Bath, take a look at our mascot profiles. 


Juima took part in Project Rugby engagement sessions at his school, which he enjoyed so much he transitioned to Mixed Ability Rugby at Walcot Warriors.

Jiuma loves seeing his coaches and friends at the sessions and his hand-eye coordination, skill development and progress have bee hugely encouraged and inspired by his coaches at Walcot Warriors.  


Morgan has been with the Foundation since he was seven years old. Being part of the Foundation's programmes has opened doors for Morgan he was not aware of before. 

Through encouragement, success and friendship, Morgan has been able to not only build his confidence but be aware that he is doing so. Naturally quite a quiet person, by feeling included he has come out of his shell and is now a well-known and popular member of the Walcot Warriors Mixed Ability Rugby team. 


Jack joined Bath Rugby Foundation a year ago, and has since taken part in Hi5!-under-16s, a club for young people with additional learning needs. Whatever the weather, Jack has attended every session and loves being around the coaches.

Ella takes pride in being part of the Bath Rugby Ladies Trojans Mixed Ability Rugby team. From attending training, Ella has developed both physically and socially. 

Ella can be very hard on herself but is determined to be the best she can be through continuing to learn new skills. 

Ella looks up to her Bath Rugby Ladies coach, Hannah, and the coaches at the Foundation. She often asks a lot of questions on their experiences and tries her hardest to impress and show what she can do. 


Alice is a popular participant at the Foundation and is passionate about everything she does. Alice has loved the opportunities given to her through the Foundation and has made lots of strong friendships in which she continues to build memories. 

Alice has been with us since 2010 and has gone from strength to strength. She has joined the Bath Rugby Ladies Trojans and and recently accepted the challenge of being the team's vice captain due to her enthusiasm and positivity towards her team mates. 


Josh is part of many of the Foundation's programmes. After attending a Project Rugby session at school in 2019, Josh built up his confidence and as since become a part of Walcot Warriors along with many of the other mascots. 

Whilst attending rugby training and the programmes he's part of at the Foundation, Josh has built the confidence to even attend sessions on his own and continues to work towards building up his life skills and boosting his independence. 

Meadhbh (Maeve) Kerrigan

Maeve participated in Project RUgby, a project run in secondary schools by Bath Rugby Foundation in partnership with Premiership Rugby and Gallagher. Maeve has enrolled in the newly formed girls' rugby section of Combe Down RFC which has been supported by the Foundation via Project Rugby.

Jaxson became involved with the Foundation through a bespoke lifestyle project, Move With Bath, in partnership with Wiltshire Council. The project uses sport as a tool to engage and introduce key messages around health, nutrition and mindset. 

Jaxson and his family wanted to make some lifestyle changes which included improving his physical activity levels and nutrition. After completing the 12-week project, Jaxson's hard work saw him lose 2.2kg in weight and make sustainable changes to his activity levels and eating habits. 

Jaxson is now full of confidence and and is looking to join a local football or rugby club in Trowbridge or Melksham. 


Isabella participated in Bath Rugby Foundation's bespoke holiday activity food project Breakout which focuses on support for young people during the school holidays by providing a consistent and affordable provision for children who receive free school meals. 

After demonstrating her kindness for others, her Foundation coaches have recognised not only her great engagement to the activities, but her empathy for others. 

Isabella is extremely excited about being a mascot for the Bath Rugby v London Irish fixture and her family are increasing interested in the other programmes the Foundation can offer Isabella. 


Since joining the Foundation's primary school project 'Engage', George discovered his rugby skills and demonstrated his kicking and catching abilities to his coaches. From here, George soon joined Corsham Rugby Club for his first training session. 

His confidence has grown exponentially following his time at Bath Rugby Foundation and his new rugby club, and with his new found self-esteem, George has delivered games and activities at his 'Engage' sessions with real passion and leadership.
