JHC Systems, the leading provider of wealth management solutions, is proud to announce their support of the Dallaglio Foundation with the aim of helping young people tackle life in a positive way. The Dallaglio Foundation set up by Ex – England Rugby player, Lawrence Dallaglio, aims to impact the lives of those excluded from mainstream education – increasing their self-worth, improving life chances and boosting their chances of a future in employment.
This summer, John Blackman, chief executive officer of JHC Systems, will embark on a five day Cycle Slam ride around Majorca covering over 100km per day. John has set himself a target of raising £3,000, and is committed to raising this to help young people in need face daily challenges, and ultimately improve their standard of living. The Cycle Slam will see the team cover 517km of the Spanish island including 7262 metres of uphill climbing.
The Cycle Slam has been organised to support, RugbyWorks, an initiative set up through the Dallaglio Foundation that uses rugby to transform the aspirations of young people, primarily 14-16 year olds that are at an increased risk of long-term unemployment and increased risk of becoming involved in crime. RugbyWorks believes that a huge range of factors lead to students becoming excluded from mainstream education, and whatever the reason may be, that they should be offered the support that will prevent them from being excluded from mainstream society as a result.
John Blackman, chief executive officer of JHC Systems, said:
“I am very much looking forward to taking part in this year’s Cycle Slam in aid of RugbyWorks. I feel passionately that all young people should be given the opportunity to learn and develop, by being offered practical support and education. With this support, we aim to instil belief that they can succeed in life and increase the chances of a better future. Over the course of the year I am looking forward to JHC Systems continuing its support of the initiative and working closely with the Dallaglio Foundation.”
