ST MARY’S icon Matt Le Tissier has been dishing out pizzas to members of Saints Foundation.

Le Tissier was recently named as an ambassador of the club’s charitable arm along with former athlete Iwan Thomas.

Le Tissier said: “I’ve seen first-hand the impact Saints Foundation has had on the local community during this difficult time. Alongside them, I have helped their staff deliver food to those most in need.

“I’m proud to have been named an official ambassador of Saints Foundation recently and its humbling to be able to reward the brilliant staff for all their hard work over the last few months.”

Jess Hulbert, health projects co-ordinator, received a pizza delivered by the former star for her work helping to keep older people active and co-ordinating the Saints Foundation’s prescription delivery service, which has delivered over 1,600 prescriptions to vulnerable people across the city.

Paul Hedges, health projects manager, and Marion Gealer, project co-ordinator, also played an integral part in running the prescription delivery service.

In addition, they filmed exercise videos from their kitchen to help older people keep fit and healthy during lockdown.

The couple were rewarded with a Domino’s pizza for their contribution to the 4,500 phone calls Saints Foundation made to participants of the charity’s programmes.

Coaching and training development officer, Lee Nicholas was also celebrated with a free meal, having co-ordinated an extensive programme of CPD webinars for Saints Foundation staff and a unique collaboration with other football club Foundations across the country.

Football & Sports Development Officer, Gareth Byres was able to refuel with a pizza after raising over £800 for Saints Foundation by running a full marathon in twenty 1.3 mile loops from his house.
