Matt Hampson Foundation and Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby

Over the past few years Coloplast have formed a close relationship with the Matt Hampson Foundation, with Matt continuing to bring personal inspiration to the whole of the Coloplast team.


Coloplast employees are extremely passionate about the Foundation and their causes and have actively been involved with fundraising for the Foundation. 


This passion was extended further when a dedicated Coloplast team participated in the Walk4Matt. A 115 mile journey, walking along the canal tow paths from Rugby to Twickenham with only a canal boat as support, raising vital funds for the Foundation - even along the way!


Coloplast is proud to continue the relationship with the Matt Hampson Foundation and and have extended this to include the support of the newly formed Leicester Tigers Rugby team. 


The Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby team meet weekly at DeMontfort University to train and are looking to recruit new members.

Matt Hampson

"Coloplast have helped me considerably, not only with my physical needs which has improved my life! They have supported me and my Foundation for a number of years.

Though Coloplast's support, it has enabled my Foundation to set up a Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby Team, the first of its kind. We have been able to install a professional approach to Wheelchair Rugby, which in turn has supported our players to focus on their sport, rather than having to worry about funds.
Thank you, Matt." 

Ulrik Berthelsen, Coloplast UK

"Matt Hampson became injured from doing what he loved, playing rugby.  As a result of his injury Matt has a mission in life and that is to improve and make a difference to young people that have become injured through sport.  Matt is an inspiration to everyone he meets and engages with.  You can only be moved and inspired by Matt, whoever you are.  Matt makes us all stop and think.  All Coloplast employees who meet Matt feel connected to improving the lives for those people with intimate healthcare needs. As General Manger of Coloplast I am proud to work with the Matt Hampson Foundation."

Further information on the Matt Hampson Foundation

The Matt Hampson Foundation aims to provide advice, support, relief and/or treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause, but in particular from participation in or training for any sport, sporting activity or other form of physical education or recreation.  The Foundation mainly assists people who have received such injuries in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland but that does not preclude us from helping those in other parts of the World who need urgent assistance.

The Matt Hampson Foundation helps individuals by offering direct grants or by paying into existing and future funds to assist with equipment, technology or just every-day expenses.  In addition the Foundation also supports organisations and institutions whose aims are similar to their own and who also provide relief and treatment to those who have suffered injuries as described above. Through Matt Hampson, the Foundation is also able to offer mentoring, friendship and education. Very often a chat with somebody such as Matt who has been through it, ‘got the t-shirt’ and overcome many issues himself is the best assistance that injured personnel can get. Matt’s educational visits to schools and clubs provide understanding and can be extremely motivational to those who hear him talk about his experiences and his zest for life.
