Sutton United midfielder Ryan Burge hails Jason Roberts Foundation work in Brent and Grenada
Sutton United midfielder Ryan Burge has hailed the work being done by former professional footballer Jason Roberts and the Jason Roberts Foundation after attending a Celebration Dinner held at Wembley Hilton, opposite the iconic Wembley Stadium.
The former Port Vale and Newport County midfielder said: “It was great to be invited to the Jason Roberts Foundation and see the excellent work that’s being done both locally and abroad.
“It was a great insight into the work they do and how far they have come over the years, and most importantly how they’ve given opportunities to a diverse group of people.
“Hearing from people who have experienced first-hand the work the Foundation is doing reinforces the importance of what’s being done.
“Jason had a great career in the professional game and it’s nice to see a former professional give back to his communities and have such an impact in doing so.”
The Jason Roberts Foundation (JRF) held a Celebration Dinner to recognise all that it has achieved in becoming a key driving force for positive social change in the UK and Grenada. Following a very successful year, the Jason Roberts Foundation hosted their third dinner, amongst the Foundation’s supporters and friends.
In 2015, JRF engaged with more than 1,500 young people across London, Grenada, Bristol and Belfast, while also bringing a team to the Homeless World Cup in Amsterdam. JRF work with young people at risk of offending and homelessness, those excluded from school or struggling in the school curriculum, and young people with physical and learning difficulties.Click here to stay up to date with AtTheMatch
