LISTEN TO SORENSEN'S TALKING ABOUT CHARITY WORK BELOW
Former Stoke and Melbourne City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen says he was motivated by the community aspect of football to involve himself in charity work.
Since retiring in 2017 Sorensen has been involved with the Starlight foundation and plans to ride 3500 kilometres across Australia for the foundation.
Sorensen told David Davutovic on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s Football Q&A being able to give back to the community has been the most satisfying aspect.
“It made me realise I want to give something back, doing something for others fives me that extra satisfaction,” Sorensen said.
It was the community involvement as part of his football career in the Premier League which motivated Sorensen to pursue an active role in charity work.
“I saw the positive effect it had on children who were ill in hospital, it gave them a massive boost,” Sorensen said.
Sorensen has raised a little over $50,000 for his ride across Australia so far with his goal being $150,000.
Football Q&A airs every Wednesday from 5pm (AEDT) hosted by David Davutovic on FNR_Football Nation Radio.
