We are proud to announce the launch of our Saints Foundation Ambassador Programme, which will help to drive further awareness of our charity whilst remaining true to our mission of transforming lives within our community.
Southampton FC players, James Ward-Prowse and Maya Yoshida, will be named as Saints Foundation’s first two ambassadors. As part of the role, they will spread the charity’s message to more people across the city, whilst visiting projects to see how our work affects the lives of people in Southampton.
This is just the start of our new scheme. More ambassadors are set to be announced next year. You'll hear about it first in this newsletter!
Speaking about joining forces with Saints Foundation, first-team star, James Ward-Prowse said: “It is a real honour for me to become an ambassador for Saints Foundation. I have been with the club since the age of nine and I know how important it is to the community.
“So, I will do everything I can to help.”
Maya Yoshida added: “After making my 1% pledge earlier this season, I am excited to see how Saints Foundation is helping to change lives. I want to go out to sessions, see how they work and continue to help the city.”
To understand more about Saints Foundation, seven participants crossing the length and breadth of our work were invited to Staplewood – Southampton FC’s training ground – to give both players a personal understanding of how we support those in need.
The full video will be shown on our social media channels on Thursday, so make sure you keep an eye out to hear more from James and Maya about their decision to become Saints Foundation Ambassadors.
