Welcome to the Star Awards 2014, an evening designed to celebrate the work o the Saints Foundation, and in particular the antastic achievements o our participants over the past 12 months. This year’s ve Star Award winners are all inspiring individuals, and we look orward to sharing their stories with you. Saints Foundation is an independent charity aligned to Southampton Football Club. Harnessing the passion o the Club and its ans we aim to INSPIRE, SUPPORT and DELIVER positive change and equality o opportunity or young people and vulnerable adults across Southampton and surrounding areas. Across all o our programmes, the Saints Foundation now engages with over 30,000 young people and vulnerable adults each year, and in so doing invests over £1.4 million into local communities within Southampton and the surrounding area. These unds are generated through grants, sponsorship, coaching income, and the never-ceasing support o a huge number o individuals and businesses within our local community. These individuals include a number o philanthropists who have chosen to remain anonymous – it goes without saying that we are extremely grateul or your tremendous generosity. I would like to thank each and every one o you in the room tonight or contributing to the Saints Foundation’s successes in 2014 – quite simply, none o the work that we deliver would be possible without your support. In particular, I would like to thank Katharina Liebherr, Ralph Krueger, Gareth Rogers and the entire team at Southampton FC who are consistently the Foundation’s biggest supporters, committing huge amounts o time, resources and expertise to support the charity’s ambitions. This gratitude extends to the rst-team squad and coaching staf, who regularly give up their time to ofer their support to the Foundation, and in so doing help put a smile on the aces o many o our participants. In addition, I’d like to record our appreciation to the Premier League, who alongside other partners such as the Proessional Footballers’ Association, Sport England and Comic Relie, help und many o the programmes that you will hear about this evening. The Premier League has also made a donation to support some o the costs associated with tonight’s event, a gesture or which we are extremely grateul. I hope you enjoy the night!
