Former England and Saracens rugby player, Andy Farrell OBE, has had successful international careers in both rugby league and union.
As a league player, Andy won the Golden Boot as the best player in the world in 2004, the Man of Steel Award twice and the Players Player Award.
Following his transfer to rugby union in 2006, Andy was part of England’s 2007 Six Nations and World Cup squads and played at the highest level as co-captain of Hertfordshire-based club, Saracens.
Andy joined the Saracens coaching staff following his decision to retire from professional rugby in April 2009.
Andy was inducted into the Order of the British Empire for his services to the game in the New Year Honour's list of 2004.
Andy and his wife Colleen have supported Keech Hospice Care for a number of years and are committed to helping us both raise funds and communicate the important message about our work.
“It’s a real honour to be asked to be an Ambassador for a charity that is so important to Colleen and I. We were totally moved by the atmosphere at the hospices, it was uplifting and humbling. I’m really looking forward to taking on my new role and through my personal and professional life hope I can play a part in building on the charity’s success so far.”
