This years official charity of The Showdown 3 is our very own Saracens Foundation.
The Saracens Foundation is the charitable arm of Saracens and work in the North London and Hertfordshire community using sport as a tool for positive change. They run over 30 projects a week many focussing on supporting disadvantaged young people and adults including those with disabilities, educational challenges, reducing reoffending rates through projects in Feltham Young Offenders Institution and The Mount Prison.
The charity has also recently set up a programme to support refugees in the north London community. Keep your eyes peeled on the pitch at half time for a dance performance from over 700 participants, over-50s and some of our disability participants!
