The Lillywhite Foundation aims to give young people, both in the UK and abroad, greater opportunities to participate in sports and social activity. It is our belief that team sports and social activity increase not only the social well being of young people, but aids positive social development, increases confidence and self esteem, and teaches valuable life skills.
The Lillywhite Foundation looks to focus on identifying and funding specific projects that the Foundation and its Board of Trustees believe merit support.
The Lillywhite Foundation has an independent voluntary Board of Trustees who donate their time and experience to ensure that the Foundation is governed properly and that all funds received by the Foundation are appropriately used and go towards helping young people as intended.
The Lillywhite Foundation is delighted and grateful to have the support of three former professional sportsman and an award winning broadcaster who all share the Foundations belief in the power of sport and the benefits it can provide.
The founders and the Trustees of the Lillywhite Foundation together with these sporting patrons share the core values of sport being a global language that can bring people together and help develop life skills in young people.
The Lillywhite Foundation is also eternally grateful to have been given continued support from a number of high profile sporting professionals and icons, such as former England Manager Glenn Hoddle, former Tottenham Hotspur players Paul Miller, and John Pratt, former England Cricket Coach Paul Farbrace, and former PSG striker & Cameroons record goal scorer Patrick Mboma.
The Foundation benefits from regular fund raising events. The donations, and general support that The Lillywhite Foundation receives is welcomed from all sources, and gratefully received by the children and young people whose lives the help might change for the better.
