Russell Martin Foundation announce strategic partnership with SO Legal

The Russell Martin Foundation is excited to announce a strategic partnership with esteemed legal firm SO Legal. This collaboration brings together the Foundation's commitment to empowering youth and SO Legal's expertise in legal matters.

The partnership underscores a shared vision between the two organisations. Russell Martin, founder of the Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "Partnering with SO Legal is a significant step toward creating positive change. Together, we will drive growth and transformation in the communities we serve."

Hamed Ovaisi, co-founder and managing director, said:

"We are delighted that we have been given the opportunity to work with the Russell Martin Foundation - a community-based organisation with a fantastic track record of using football to help change young people's lives.

"Russell, Alan Sanders and the RMF team immediately impressed us with their vision and determination to give something back, and we're thrilled to be involved. The redevelopment of the Old Barn Way site is an exciting project that will have a positive and lasting impact on the local community."

As the official legal partner, SO Legal will provide vital legal support, enhancing the Foundation's operations and expanding its reach as the organisation continues to grow. This partnership exemplifies a collective dedication to helping young people and enhancing community development.
