John Amaechi fundraiser

A message from FGG Ambassador John Amaechi:

I have had my own charity for a number of years. The staff and volunteers there do incredible work nearly 365 days a year. The charity revolves around a basketball centre I built in 2000, but sport is the "fly paper" we use to attract and retain kids from every walk of life, culture, religion, sexuality and from across the country.

It must be working as we have about 2000 young men and women a week coming through our doors.

The training every coach gets prepares them to deal with a diverse group of young people in a way that helps produce emotionally literate, assertive and trusting young men and women who can communicate and lead.

I know some people think that sports has some kind of magic in the bouncing/rolling ball, but really it is only by having staff who espouse certain core principles that young people get what they should out of playing sports and being on a team.

I would highly recommend you take a look at what we do here:
