England star Ashton and other players regularly attend training sessions at Allianz Park on Monday evenings giving up their free time to meet the teenage youngsters who are involved with the Saracens Sports Foundation and suffer with disabilities.
The sessions are sponsored by Hampstead car dealers Alan Day Volkswagen with managing director Paul Tanner and two senior managers assisting.
Mr Tanner said: “I’d like to thank the Saracens players Chris Ashton, Will Fraser and Jackson Wray for helping out with the training over the past year and giving up their free time.
“Having them here is a great inspiration for us all.
