As Chairman of the PCA Benevolent Fund for the last ten years, I have worked with Jason for the entirety of that time and his contribution has been outstanding.
In terms of both reactivity and proactivity, Jason has been key to providing help to so many cases of real need. He’s been the conduit for the majority of people that we help and he’s been the groundbreaker in providing vital new material in regard to alcohol, drug and gambling addiction, so that we move from cure to prevention. He’s also been fundamental in raising awareness over the real issue of depression that faces the modern sportsperson, particularly when their career is at an end.
As a charity, we’ve made huge progress and much of that is due to Jason Ratcliffe.
