Our 2017 charity is Open Youth Trust, Norwich.


Paul McVeigh was a professional footballer for nearly 20 years playing for clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur, Burnley and Norwich City, whilst gaining 40 caps internationally for Northern Ireland.

He made over 300 appearances and was a key member of 2 championship winning teams and rose to the pinnacle of English football.

Paul has recently finished his studies, which means he is the first person in history to play in the premier league and qualify with a masters in sport psychology.

He is also a published author of the ironically entitled book ‘The Stupid Footballer is Dead’ and started his own company ‘Thinker’, which works on psychological development in elite sport.

John Gordon-Asker, Chief Executive - Open Youth Trust

As Chief Executive, John is responsible for the development of the OPEN Youth Trust and is keen to tell its compelling story to a wider audience. John joined OPEN in August 2015, returning to Norfolk after more than 30 years away.   John comes from an event and marketing background and previously ran WPP’s brand communication agency and business media division of World Productions, the independent broadcast production company set up by Tony Garnett and Chris Blackwell.

OPEN Youth Trust was established in 2005 to give young people in Norfolk the life skills to maximise their potential and give them the confidence and independence to help them into work. The charity makes a positive difference to the lives of over 4,500 young people (aged 11-19) each year through its Drop-In youth hub, workshops, gym, café, dance studio and climbing wall (with holiday activities for 4-12 year olds), whilst another 10,000 primary and secondary school children participate in and attend a range of dance shows, orchestral concerts, musicals and school events. It is starting to take its activities to youth clubs in areas of rural isolation around the county, under the banner of OPEN Norfolk.  The aim is to become self-sufficient within three years by growing and diversifying its commercial revenue from conferencing, events, live music, meeting room hire, secure storage and catering facilities.
