Danny Simpson: Charity Patron
“If I can help the foundation then that’s what I want to do.”
Simpson, who grew up in Salford, Manchester, added: “As a kid, I was around this sort of thing. Kiyan was only 15 when this happened, an absolute tragedy. People need to be aware of what is happening on our streets. We need to do all we can to reduce knife and gun crime as much as possible.
“As a young footballer with a background that is familiar with this, I want to help raise awareness. If I can go to schools to do that, then that’s what I’d like to do. Even if only a few people listen to me and change their way of thinking, then I’ll feel I have done my bit.”
“I couldn’t imagine going through what Mark has gone through, and what he continues to go through,” Simpson said.
Leon McKenzie: Charity Patron
The reason The Kiyan Prince Foundation has a place in my heart is because of my good friend and big brother Mark Prince, who’s an inspiration to me with his work towards changing things especially after his son was murdered.
He shows the strength to not give up & continues to support others.
Kiyan was a kid that had the ability to be a professional footballer but had his life cut short. Im honored to represent Kiyan’s foundation & for it to become part of my journey too.
Mitchell Smith: Charity Patron
Naturally I often get asked who my sporting hero is, and in all honesty, i don’t have one. Actually meeting Mark and finding out first hand what he’s been through and understanding the positivity Mark and the Foundation represent, has had a real impact on me.
I am only a young man but I have realised that working with The KPF I can try and play a tiny part towards helping Mark create his legacy he deserves in his son’s name.
