“I am delighted to support the marvellous work of [me]united”

Andrew James

After almost 40 years in Sports Reporting, working with some of the biggest names, I am more than convinced by the power of sport to engage people and improve outcomes.

As a trustee and now an employee of Notts County’s award winning community programme, I have seen at first hand how projects like [me]united are a lifeline, especially to men who don’t find it as easy as women to visit a doctor.

The Nottingham version of [me]united has been running for over ten years now and independent analysis by the University of Nottingham has confirmed the value of such projects to individuals and society as a whole.

[me]united brings improved self-esteem, confidence and reduced isolation. These are all key factors in helping some of society’s most vulnerable people to enjoy life more.

I wish Matthew and the team every success and pledge any support that we at Notts County can offer as more and more people in the North West enjoy the benefits that [me]united are already delivering.
