why we support them
This is Marc. He is the son of Sharon and the husband of Lianne and the reason behind why we've chosen to support The Albion Foundation.
Marc lost his leg in 2016 due to diabetic complications. During his rehabilitation, he decided he wanted to get back into football, both as a way of improving his health and as a way to meet people in similar situations. However there was no local amputee team. He helped to set up the West Bromwich Amputee Team.
Since the team was set up they have visited different schools and worked with disabled children through The Albion Foundation.
It was thanks to The Albion Foundation that Marc regained his confidence and has found something he is passionate about. Our raising funds for them is a big "thank you!" for everything they've done for him.
