About the Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust

The Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust was set up to continue Cyrille’s passion of giving back and paying forward.

Cyrille always considered it important to give back to his community. He saw it as a privilege that he could highlight various needs within the community and utilise his position to raise awareness and support for a number of causes. Each year he would attend numerous charity events and, in particular, cherished his role an ambassador and Trustee for Christians in Sport, Wateraid and his nephew’s charity, Thehe Jason Roberts Foundation, and several other charities and grassroots organisations that he chose to represent.

Prior to his passing Cyrille had begun to share his thoughts about retirement and the kind of charity work he wanted to spend much of his time engaged in. The Cyrille Regis Legacy Trust has been built upon the ideas he shared with his wife Julia and those who knew Cyrille will be able to recognise his DNA and values in the aims of the charity.

The Trust has three key aims: to develop or support football-based projects which lie at the heart of their communities; to create or support mentoring initiatives which help people from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their social and economic circumstances; and to break down barriers in our communities.

As we build the charity, we look forward to sharing more of our ideas with you.
