SUPPORT FOR SPORTS
'Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude.
I can assure them it is much more serious than that.'
Okay, sport may not be more important than life or death to most people. But it can have a profound effect on our quality of life, mental health and wellbeing. For this reason, and because I love most sports myself, I am very happy to support organisations such as:
The Premier League Charitable Fund - which includes all Premier and English Football League clubs;
The Harlequins Foundation;
Fulham Football Club Foundation;
Watford Football Club - Community Sports and Education Trust.
So far, support has included:
Reviewing the organisation's current educational offer and planning for continuous improvement;
Training sessions, focussing on how we can improve children's resilience and wellbeing through sport;
Training sessions which focus on how adults, working with children and young people, can maintain and improve their own good mental health and wellbeing.
