Thank you for visiting our BT MyDonate page. The John Paul II Foundation for Sport, launched October 2011, aims through sport to enable everyone, in particular the young, to develop their full potential in the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspects of their lives. John Paul II Foundation for Sport is guided by the principles identified by Pope John Paul II and set out in his declarations and writing. With this in mind, the Foundation has been busy supporting the creation of new sports clubs in parishes and schools across the country. The dream is to free up numerous school sports facilities to enable local young people to get off the streets to concentrate their energies and so turn ‘gangs into teams’.The first such club, Sports Squared, opened in September 2012. S2 uses the sports facilities at Sion-Manning School and St Charles VIth Form College, and offers sessions in basketball, dance, fitness, football and trampolining for local children and young adults on Friday evenings.Sports Squared is making an enormous difference to the community in Ladbroke Grove, London and is living proof just how valuable the work JP2F4S is undertaking.By Easter 2014 the number of clubs had reached 15 with more in the pipeline.

Newly formed in 2014, Friends of Ipswich Town FC has been created with the objective of bringing the Club closer to the local community by providing facilities and offering sport related activities to local residents. By interacting with the local district, our vision is that we will enhance and promote inclusion, education, health, and sport, with the subsequent intention of improving the wellbeing of not only the Ipswich Town FC fanbase, but also the local community as a whole. We aim to build on the already active presence that the Club has in the community, by using the ‘Power of Football’ to influence the lives of people in the Ipswich and surrounding area. As a charitable company, Friends of Ipswich Town FC is governed by a select group of trustees, all of whom have an interest in the local community. We are targeting steady year on year growth, but with the principle aim of keeping the needs of the community at the heart of everything we do. Furthermore, we will endeavour to consistently make all our activities available to people of all ages, from all backgrounds and from all abilities. Our work will be divided into four areas to reflect our vision of providing educational, sporting, social and healthy lifestyle opportunities to the local community. These four areas are health, sports development, social inclusion and education. The plan outlines the key actions within each area that we believe will allow us to achieve our vision, as well as the human and financial resources that will be required.
