Stronger Together: The Street Soccer Foundation & The Connect 4 Group form new partnership

The Street Soccer Foundation is delighted to announce its latest new and exciting partnership with The Connect 4 Group.

Based in Leicestershire, The Connect 4 Group is a group of companies providing services and solutions across Energy, Engineering, Voice & Data, Digital, and Finance.

Co-Directors, Bobby Singh and Happy Singh met Keith Mabbutt, CEO of the Street Soccer Foundation, just before the national lockdown came into effect, after being introduced to each other by David Johnson-Rayner, MD of Koi Sports – another official Supporter of the Foundation.

Speaking of their initial meeting, Mabbutt said:

“After meeting Bobby and Happy I was instantly drawn to their warm support of our endeavour after I’d explained how we would be working in Leicestershire with Leicester City FC and their Trust, to help young homeless individuals through our Academy programme. Their enthusiasm to want to help us, help others and make a difference made it an obvious natural step for us to explore more fully a proper partnership together.”

Happy Singh continued:

“The Connect 4 Group is 100% committed to making a positive difference to the world around us. Whether that’s through business or social change, we are here to support those prepared to go that extra mile to positively change or save the lives of others in our society.

We believe that homelessness in the UK, especially in the 21st century, is wrong. So, we fully support the mission and values of the Street Soccer Foundation. We realise that sport is something that resonates with young people, making it the perfect base for learning.

We are looking forward to the future and the changes we can make together, to enhance these young people’s lives.”

The partnership with The Connect 4 Group represents a nationwide collaboration which will provide financial support towards the delivery of several Street Soccer Academies both in Leicestershire and across the country.

Through one of the Group company solutions, ‘Connect 4 Energy’, the company will offer a no obligation opportunity to provide a free energy audit for all Street Soccer Foundation partners and supporters, including businesses of all sizes, ultimately seeking to reduce energy bills. Generated profits will then be reinvested by the Group directly into the Academies through the Foundation to help support vulnerable young people in communities nationally.

The Connect 4 Group is clearly on a mission to make a difference to people’s lives and firmly believes that if you want to change the world, you need to be that change!

Bobby Singh further commented:

“We are very proud and humbled to be able to do this through football and the Street Soccer Foundation. Our partnership means more than words can express. It’s an amazing opportunity for our company to not only grow, but possibly save so many young lives by opening up opportunities they may never otherwise get.”

The Connect 4 Group is looking forward to supporting the Street Soccer Foundation through their unique business model and intends to work alongside the Foundation to launch and sustain as many Street Soccer Academies as possible on a national scale.
