  • Mission statement

    The Free Kicks Foundation is a Peterborough based charity whose aim is to provide football-related activities for ill, bereaved and disadvantaged children, to give them a day to remember with their favourite football club.

    The charity is run on a voluntary basis by Steve Thorpe and Sam Downing. Steve’s main responsibility is fundraising as well as using his extensive media contacts to gain publicity. Sam is the Kick Co-ordinator, she liaises with clubs, hospitals and families to ensure that the children have a day to remember.

    All the people we meet are inspirational in one way or another. The looks on their faces when they get to meet the players or get to go on the tour of the grounds and see behind the scenes makes all the hard work worthwhile.
