Motor neurone disease breakthrough – Great news for our Charity Sponsor

27th January 2021

As a supporter of MND, and with two Tiger’s players affected by the disease, the club was very pleased to hear the news of a breakthrough bringing scientists a step closer to being able to reverse the damage caused by motor neurone disease (MND).

Jill Douglas, CEO of the MND charity, My Name’5 Doddie Foundation and Cheltenham Tigers Women’s President said: “A very exciting breakthrough, and very proud of the Foundation’s support for this project. It is one of the many excellent MND research projects being undertaken with the support of all key stakeholders, and it is only possible through the incredible help and support we receive from our fundraisers and donors. We are all in this together to find a cure”.

Mike Crisp said: “This is wonderful news and shows what can be achieved with dedicated funding. Every penny raised towards research is invaluable because MND is so underfunded.”

The Club is also delighted to confirm another donation has been made to the Freddie Crisp Trust. We are all experiencing hardships at the moment, but it is vital we all support others who are less fortunate. These funds have been raised as part of the men’s and women’s membership payments this season.


We are a competitive rugby club providing sport for all. Our players start as Tiger Cubs (under 4’s) and play at all levels and ages up to Veterans, boys and girls, men and women, in fully inclusive environment, embracing all of rugby's core values.
