Next 20 Ambassador supports local project

28 April 2014

Harry Maguire made a return visit to the St Wilfrid's Centre in Sheffield to support their St George's Day Community Event.

The Kick it Out Next 20 Ambassador joined United Legend Tony Currie and World Championship snooker player Ken Doherty to draw the raffle at the centre which was raising funds for their residential project.

Harry joined a large number of community representatives, local VIPs and Centre clients for the event which included a buffet, singing of traditional English songs and a Morris Dancing display.

The Centre is aiming to raise £1.8m to build a residential centre to assist with supporting the homeless and vulnerable in the city and they have already reached the 1 million mark.

Harry was given a warm reception by those present and spoke of the recent successful FA Cup run by the Blades.

"The work done at St Wilf's is fantastic and I wish the Centre every success in raising the money needed for the residential project," said Harry.

"I appreciate the importance of good mental health as a footballer and it is vital that those who find themselves homeless and vulnerable as a result of mental health problems are given support. The Centre here recognises the need to include these individuals and help them overcome the discrimination that many of them face."

Kevin Bradley, Director of the St Wilfrid's Centre said: "We really appreciate the support that Sheffield United give us on an ongoing basis and it was fantastic that Harry Maguire could join us and give us his support."
