Michael Wallace and Ashley Levien first approached OLLIE in late 2017. As Michael is a community volunteer outside of work, he was aware of the charity and the work they were doing.
Ashley and Michael were rolling out their Kickoff@3 football initiative on a National level and wanted to work with OLLIE as they felt there was synergy between the two organisations.
Since that original meeting, OLLIE have worked very closely with them. OLLIE were privileged enough to be recommended by them for Herts Constabulary’s charity of choice in 2018. OLLIE were also invited to come and speak to a number of Senior Police Officers within the Metropolitan Police about charities role in working with them. On the back of that, they were also chosen as one of the Bromley’s event charities in April 2018. Every year Kickoff@3 also host a social fundraiser for a specific charity and KickOff@3 kindly chose The OLLIE Foundation as their charity for 2019.
The ethos behind Kickoff@3 very similar to the OLLIE ethos, in that it is all about partnerships. It’s not about being the best organisation, but about organisations working together to deliver the best to our communities.
