The Troy Deeney Foundation
Following the launch of his new charitable foundation, Troy Deeney spoke to watfordfc.com about what he hopes to achieve and his first project at Garston Manor School.
With a focus on children, Deeney will be aiming to raise funds for various projects in the local area, as outlined in his official mission statement:
“We believe that every child deserves the chance to lead a normal life and be given the same opportunities despite their circumstances.
“Through fundraising and shining a spotlight on local projects, our goal is to make a difference to the day to day lives of children with learning disabilities and life-limiting illness. We aim to do this by breaking down their barriers to society and equipping them with the means to live fulfilling lives.”
The Hornets' skipper is initially aiming to raise £40,000 to build a multi-purpose sports area at Garston Manor School, north Watford, which will be specifically designed for children with autism and learning difficulties.
