Changing Lives At The Cardiff City Foundation

The Trust was invited by Cardiff City FC Foundation to a media briefing this week to learn more about the work of the club’s official charity.

Foundation Director Gavin Hawkey, chair Leighton Andrews and foundation staff talked about how the charity was changing lives.

It offers a range of programmes to inspire education, improve health and wellbeing and build safer communities, working annually with many thousands of children, young people, families and vulnerable adults across Cardiff and the south Wales Valleys.

Trust Press Officer Phillip Nifield said: “The Foundation does some incredible work changing the lives of people and we were shown a number of examples where this happens. This included a girl who had dropped out of school but is now at university and also a lad who was part of the Premier League Kicks programme and was featured on BBC’s Match of The Day.

“There is undoubtedly a very dedicated team at the foundation and it was very useful to talk over ideas for spreading the message further to Bluebirds fans and people in communities across south Wales. We hope supporters will become increasingly proud of the  wonderful work done at the foundation.”
