Joe Root Show's Support to Foundation

The England cricket captain is the latest sportsmen to show his support for the Matt Hampson Foundation.

Foundation CEO Tommy Cawston was invited to play in the annual Stuart Broad v Joe Root golf day at the Belfry and had this to day about the occasion, “It was a fantastic day, the Belfry have been huge supporters of the Foundaiton over the last few years so it was an honour to be invited to take part in such a special event. Stuart Broad is a longstanding ambassador for the Foundation and has known Matt for a long time and it was nice to meet Joe who had also heard about the work we do. In fact his mum Helen is a big supporter of ours so it was nice to talk to him about the Foundation and present him with a copy of Matt’s book Engage.”

The annual event saw Stuart Broad’s Belfry team defeat Joe Root’s Village Hotel side in a Ryder Cup style format. Tommy was joined on the winning Team by Foundation Trustee Julian Evans and good friend the Belfry’s very own Darren Jones.
