Our Patrons



Mike Phillips - Patron

Mike Phillips has been a professional rugby player for over 10 years, currently playing in the France for Racing Metro and for Wales. He started his professional career at the Scarlets and then moved to both the Cardiff Blues and the Ospreys, before heading to warmer climates! He has also represented the British and Irish Lions and his country, Wales - recently winning a Grand Slam in the 2012 Six Nations tournament.  When asked about being a patron of Follow Your Dreams Mike said, “I’ve always tried to help as many charities as possible over the years but to be a patron of such an amazing charity such as Follow Your Dreams is a massive honour.  To see first-hand and learn what goes on in a charity that is actually helping youngsters with learning disabilities achieve their ‘Dreams’ is just ‘class’! I was very lucky to live out my dream of playing rugby for Wales and everybody should be given the same opportunity, regardless of a disability.”  Mike’s passion to help children with learning disabilities was evident when discussing his plans for the future, “I don’t see why youngsters with learning disabilities can’t have their ‘Dreams’ come true. I think it’s an amazing charity that’s putting large amounts of belief into the youngsters they work with. We have to support children with learning disabilities and help them become whatever they wish to be. I don’t have any personal contact with people with learning disabilities but I hope to help as much as possible and look forward to working with Follow Your Dreams. I also hope to raise awareness of the charity and help raise as much money as possible to make the ‘Dreams’ of so many youngsters come true.”
