"I just want to say what a great day it was at the National Street20 finals. You had over 200 kids from all over the uk engaging in sport in a safe environment, & thanks for inviting me to give a talk about drugs & knife crime. Since then I've had some really positive messages from the youngters on my web site . I also think what you are doing is fantastic as your giving these kids the opportunity to play sport and be educated at the same time and i am sure between us we changed some lives and pointed alot of them in the right direction P.S Didn't see 1 unhappy face all day the whole place was full of smiles ."
