    The Official Charity Partner of London Wasps, Mind, will be out in force at Twickenham, promoting their work as a leading mental health charity.

    In the west car-park there's a "Time to Change" marquee with a number of Mind volunteers on hand to talk about their own experience of mental health problems. The volunteers will act as a human library - speaking with those attending the match about their own experiences, and in the process challenging the stigma and discrimination which sadly still surrounds mental health problems.

    There is also plenty of information being given away about Mind and the Time to Change campaign, and how others can help tackle this stigma in their own lives, or seek help for themselves or their loved ones.

    Mind volunteers are also bucket collecting on the day!

    Official Match-Day Programme

    The match-day programme will be on sale around the ground for £5.

    In this special edition programme, there's a welcome from Dai Young and an in-depth interview from London Wasps skipper Hugo Southwell!


    London Wasps are delighted to confirm that Olympic stars Zoe Smith and Anthony Ogogo will be pitch-side at half-time at the game.

    The duo are attending the game thanks to their role as Olympic ambassadors with Maximuscle, the UK’s leading sports nutrition company, who are proud sponsors of London Wasps.

    Teenage weightlifter Smith and Olympic boxing bronze medalist Ogogo, will be joining us pitch-side at half-time to discuss their London 2012 experiences with Wasps MC David Kurk.

    Smith is a familiar face at Wasps, having earlier this year spent an afternoon at the Club’s training ground gym.

    There will also be the final of the Kukri Zorb Championship on the main pitch where the winners from before the game will be in action.

    On the pitch there is Community activity with teams from Maidenhead RFC, Old Gravesendians, Wasps FC and Windsor RFC playing mini-games.
