SAINTS Foundation last night raised a staggering £95k at their Charity Dinner.

Ralph Hasenhuttl and first-team stars Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Danny Ings and James Ward-Prowse were all present for the event.

Hasenhuttl and the players went on stage to discuss the work Saints Foundation have been doing within the local community.

The Austrian was keen to point out why the charity is so important, saying: “They care about the city and the people living here. This is a message that is perfect for our club. 

“It was interesting for me to see how much they do in Southampton. It is like nothing I have ever seen at a club before.”

Head of Saints Foundation Greg Baker said: “Our charity dinner was, once again, a massive success. There has been a lot of hard work put in throughout the year to make sure we make a real impact during the evening. 

“It will make a huge, positive impact to those who need it in our community.”

Eileen and Anthony, the Senior Saints participants, who are in their eighties and take part in circuit training every week, tragically lost two of their children in the space of six months. 

Speaking about the impact of being helped by the Saints Foundation, Anthony said: “The sessions have helped me get out some of my frustrations over the last year. It is a form of counselling for me.”

Eileen added: “The staff are always so caring, and they have been there for us when we have needed them.” 

All those in attendance got to see how Saints Foundation is transforming lives in and around the community at their Charity Dinner, which was supported by Inland Homes, Ridon Joinery and Green Snow Ltd.
