Gloucester Rugby is crowdfunding

raised of £444,000 target by 6884 supporters

Weʼre raising £444,000 to show our support for Ed Slater and his family.

Don't have time to donate right now?


Gloucester Rugby have set up this page to show our support for Ed Slater and his family following his diagnosis with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Following six months of testing, Ed’s diagnosis was confirmed last week and as a result, with the support of his family, friends and Gloucester Rugby, he has made the difficult decision to retire from professional rugby with immediate effect.

Everyone at Gloucester Rugby - players, management and staff - are entirely committed to supporting Ed, his wife Jo and his three children in whatever way required. We know the same will be true of Gloucester and Leicester fans, and the wider rugby community.

While Ed, his family and the Club take time to determine next steps, Gloucester Rugby have opened this JustGiving page. The direction of these funds will be determined in due course, whether it be supporting Ed and his family directly and/or a selected MND charity.

Neither the club nor the Slater family will be making any further comment at this time and kindly request that those wishes be respected.

    Update from the Page owner

    Thank you so much for your amazing support. We had added a new milestone today, as Ed launches his first event, a 350+ mile cycle ride with friends & family. With that, we have added our next target to this page, £444,000, inspired by Ed's rugby shirt number. Read more about the ride here:

    Instead of receiving 50th birthday gifts Taff Jones has suggested we might want to donate to this cause that's what's we've done :-)
