The Aaron Lewis Foundation has joined our fight against Tay-Sachs & Sandhoff!
We are delighted to announce that the Aaron Lewis Foundation has agreed to become a partner charity of The Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (CATS) Foundation and will help us provide vital equipment to the families we support!
Earlier this year The CATS Foundation was invited to send a team to the Aaron Lewis Rugby 10’s tournament which is held at Westcliff Club to take part in their annual event. We had a fantastic time (reaching the final of the Beer Cup Competition) and were introduced to the dedicated and hard working team at the Aaron Lewis Foundation. They were all touched by the story of the charity and the families we support and wanted to help us make a positive impact on the children affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff through the provision of equipment.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at the Aaron Lewis Foundation for choosing to support the charity. The charity would also like to extend a special mention to Paddy Redding, Simon Jones and James Hyde for making this partnership become a reality and also all the players who turned out for The CATS Foundation at the ALF Rugby 10’s!

About the Aaron Lewis Foundation
On the 15th December 2008 Lieutenant Aaron Lewis, of 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery, was killed in action in Afghanistan; he was just 26 and on his first operational deployment.
Aaron wanted to make a difference in the world, bringing help to those in need. It was that belief which gave him the courage, hope and enthusiasm to deploy to Afghanistan.
Aaron’s death had a global impact, but his passion for positive change lives on. In the year following his death, family and friends raised an incredible £100,000 for a variety of service and civilian charities and provided a substantial donation towards the construction of the Commando Gunner Memorial that now stands outside of Aaron’s former base at the Royal Citadel in Plymouth.
Two years after his death, the Aaron Lewis Foundation was established by family and friends to continue to make a difference in his name. With unity and teamwork at its heart, Aaron’s family, friends and former service colleagues work together to raise funds for causes close to Aaron’s heart, providing access to sport and wellbeing for all, while at the same time furthering his legacy.
