Saints Foundation toasted the start of their new partnership with Northampton’s Boost Trampoline Park on Sunday evening, with five players turning out to celebrate the launch.
The entertainment venue kindly donated 50 per cent of its income from the event directly to Saints Foundation, and will be doing the same at several other fundraisers throughout the year.

Saints Foundation aims to educate, inspire and support young people and their communities – and those values inspired Boost to name the Franklin’s Gardens organisation their ‘Charity of the Year’.
Christian Day, Alex Mitchell, Ahsee Tuala, Tom Wood and Lewis Ludlam were in attendance at to meet and greet young Saints supporters at the 30,000 square foot indoor trampoline park, getting stuck in themselves at the venue which boasts over 50 interconnected trampolines, two Extreme Dodgeball courts, a Battle Beam, foam pits, and basketball hoops.
“Here at Boost Trampoline Park we're very excited about our new charity partnership with the Northampton Saints Foundation, supporting the great work they do in the local community,” said Boost director Alex Read.
“We were delighted to welcome so many Saints supporters to Boost to launch the partnership and kick off our fundraising in style.
“We're very grateful to the Saints players who joined us and gave everyone the chance to meet and spend time with their rugby heroes.”
Matt Goode, Saints’ Head of Foundation, added: “I would personally like to thank Alex and his Boost team for a wonderful welcome on Sunday evening, and the support they are giving the Foundation.
“Thank you to those who came to support the partnership. We are in very early stages of developing our Foundation, but to have support like this from the beginning is a great indication of a bright future.
“I’m really looking forward to Northampton Saints Foundation making a bigger difference in the community. This is only the start!”
