Kick 4 Life And The Saints
Matt (Footytube Staff) 3 years ago
Our friends at Kick 4 Life are the international charity partner for Southampton FC and this past Saturday was their day to increase awareness about the charity and to raise some money.




This was achieved by going around the ground before kick off collecting donations and handing out leaflets about the work Kick 4 Life do using football to help save lives in Africa. This collection brought in an amazing total of £1004.62.

During half time in the match with MK Dons international freestyler John Farnworth put on a truly epic display of ball control and skill. If you have never seen John in action I urge you to check out the video below.




He is going to need all that skill on the 17th of April when he will attempt to complete the London Marathon whilst keeping the ball in the air for the entire distance (26.2 miles). His aim is to raise £50,000 for Kick 4 Life You can sponsor him for this event and proceeds will go directly to Kick 4 Life.

To sponsor John go along to his sponsorship page here:

Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated but if you donate the following amounts you will receive something extra and a bit special:

For £20 you will be entered into a monthly draw to win a half-hour freestyle training session with John.

For £100 you will receive a supporter pack including a signed photo and a copy of the book ‘Eleven’ by Kick4Life cofounder Steve Fleming.

For £500 John will deliver a freestyle performance at your school or college.

For £1000 John will perform at your company premises or corporate event.

For £2500 you receive a place on a 12-day Kick4Life All Stars tour to Lesotho including flights, accommodation, full board and an adventure trip to the mountain region.

Some of these awards are UK only so check if you are after something specific.
