Mike became patron of the Foundation in 2014 after being an ambassador since the charity was founded in 2011. Mike is a very active patron and is always looking to promote the work of the Foundation. His annual charity Golf day supports the Foundation and is an event not to be missed.

"It was a massive honour when Matt asked me to be patron of the Foundation. The way he has conducted himself since his injury in 2005, and the number of people he has helped is remarkable. You can never imagine what it is like to suffer an injury like Matt's or any of the beneficiaries but to see them all out there Getting busy Living is inspiring. It's the power of wanting to move on and live your life and you just have to be in awe of that. I'm proud to be part of this charity and I'm excited to see where we can take it in the coming years"
