At Work: Fundraising - Our famous names

David Seaman has been involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust for a decade.

Former England goalkeeper David Seaman has supported the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, of which he is a patron, for more than a decade. He became involved with the charity after meeting a boy with cystic fibrosis who wanted to be a professional footballer.

Last month, he presented an award in the sporting category at the charity's annual Breathing Life Awards, which recognise the achievements of children and young people with the disease. This year, he chose the trust as the beneficiary charity of his annual Safe Hands celebrity golf tournament.

Sarah Guthrie, director of fundraising at the trust, says: "It is a real boost to families living with the disease when a household name supports us. The time that a celebrity donates is extremely valuable."

Seaman says: "The Breathing Life Awards is a very special event in my calendar and I am proud to be involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Trust."
