Having arranged 150 free tickets to the England vs. Germany game for pupils at Ravenstone Primary, I went down to meet some of the happy recipients. It's safe to say they are excited to see their heroes on the international stage. I look forward to seeing the FA continuing to partner with the community in order to fill empty seats.
Today I visited the team behind London's Air Ambulance. Their charity provides an experienced trauma team that can be at the scene of critical injury within minutes. You can donate to help their work here.

I look forward to working with the team at JAF for many more years to come.
