Bath Rugby will take on Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup on Saturday in front of a new audience – deserving youngsters from Bath Rugby’s charity.

The Round Two match at The Rec will be watched by 150 young people who take part in Bath Rugby Foundation programmes.

Bath Rugby’s charity works with around 3,000 youngsters who’ve had the toughest start in life - children and young people who have not been given an equal opportunity of success. Bath Rugby Foundation works with youngsters who are born into poverty, have a Special Educational Need or Disability, or are excluded because of their race or gender. 

Many of the young people who will attend the match will be experiencing a matchday at The Rec for the first time after Bath Rugby donated the tickets to Bath Rugby Foundation.

Bath Rugby Foundation CEO, Lynne Fernquest, said: “We always receive great support from Bath Rugby’s staff, players and, of course, supporters. 

“Our coaches work with children and young people who have not been given an equal chance of success and are certainly not able to regularly attend Bath Rugby matches. Many are loyal Bath Rugby supporters but have never been to The Rec.

"This a wonderful gift to a young person who, through no fault of their own, has had a difficult start to life.”

The 150 youngsters attending the Worcester Warriors match will be drawn from the three programme areas Bath Rugby Foundation works in – Education, Employability and Inclusion.
