Joining Dallaglio at No 10 were Mark Elliott, Chief of Staff who spent 25 Years in the Grenadier Guards and was involved in setting up Help for Heroes, and rugby loving serviceman Derek Derenalagi, who was severely injured in Afghanistan in July 2007.
The trio joined Mr Brown, unveiling the special St George's Day Game jersey that will be worn at the home of English rugby on the 24th April, and carried the matchball that Dallaglio intends to take on his own visit to Afghanistan in March.
Joining forces with Help for Heroes, a charity that has forged a great link with sport, the Club will donate a minimum of £1 per ticket. Along with other fundraising initiatives and an ambition to sell out the 82,000 capacity stadium, Wasps are determined to contribute a six figure sum to this fantastic charitable fund.
Speaking today the Prime Minister said, "I am delighted to back the London Wasps St George's Day Game in support of Help for Heroes. St George's Day is a time to celebrate all that is good about this country. This match, which is certain to be a great game between two great teams, is a chance to do just that, whilst backing some of the people we can be most proud of on St George's Day, our brave servicemen and women."
Gathering the support of Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and with ticket sales already surpassing the 15,000 mark, there is already momentum and great support behind the initiative. With an agreement in place with the Rugby Football Union to host this game at Twickenham for the next three years, this fixture is set up as a great opportunity for Wasps and wider rugby fans to celebrate St George's Day and get behind a worthy charitable cause.
