Southampton Football club and Saints Foundation are proud to launch the ‘Saints Together’ campaign, which sets out the connection between the club, the Foundation and the community.
Over the next week, the club and the Foundation will be highlighting the fantastic work the charity does in our community, through the eyes of participants, partners and staff.
The Saints Together campaign focuses on the positive impact that Saints Foundation’s programmes have on the community and how these help children, young people and vulnerable adults to fulfil their potential.
Southampton Football Club's chief executive, Gareth Rogers, sets out what the week is about with an overview of why the work of Saints Foundation is so important to the club.
"The Saints Together campaign is about celebrating all the amazing work our Foundation do in Southampton and the surrounding areas," he said.
"It fills me with a great sense of excitement and pride when I see us helping the community, but we couldn’t do this without our community, or without the amazing people in our Foundation.
“One of the things that is very dear to us at the club is the concept of potential into excellence, and that fits in no better place than in the Foundation. They believe in everyone taking their potential and turning it into the excellence that is for them.”
Over the course of the coming week, we’ll hear from Martin Sinclair, SaintsAbility Development Officer, Phil Humphreys, Executive Headteacher (Oasis Academy Lordshill and Mayfield), Molly Garside, a Senior Saints participant, Jake Plummer, a former Lifelong Learning programme participant, and Anna Pink, a teacher at Hightown Primary School.
