It is a great honour to have the opportunity to lead the next stage of ICP. I have been fortunate enough to sit alongside Barry and the rest of the Board of Trustees for a number of years, being able to learn and contribute to the success of our programmes. I thank Barry for all his hard work since the inception of ICP and look forward to continuing our efforts to provide our participants with the best possible experience, tools and opportunities.

There is never the perfect time to stand down. It seemed to me that, with the end of Covid in sight, this was a good moment. Further, ICP needs a younger person to drive it through its next phase of development. I wish Felipe the very best of good fortune and fulfilment in taking on this responsibility.

We would also like to thank Sir Trevor McDonald, OBE and Marion Bartoli for their continued support as patrons.

"I am delighted to be a Patron of IC Philanthropy and I continue to be impressed by the progress and reach which the Foundation has achieved since its activities began in 2009 and now as a fully fledged Charity. Unsurprisingly the pandemic has interfered with the ability of the managers of each programme to provide uninterrupted classes, but I have also been impressed at the ingenuity of the International Clubs running these programmes in providing alternative on-line exercises aimed at engaging the pupils and retaining their involvement. I am looking forward to helping ICP further to grow and continue its work to make a difference to the lives of many young disadvantaged people."

"There is so much that can be done for impoverished children through playing sport. From my lifelong background in tennis, I am sure that teaching children tennis with the advantages of learning through the game about the joys and disappointments of winning and losing, of sticking to rules and acquiring selfdiscipline, provide guidance for life that can help everyone. I have been impressed at the way in which those running programmes supported by ICP have managed to maintain contact with the children involved, when so many have had to cease contact with individual participants in many other events. I do hope that these programmes continue to flourish when life, post Covid-19, returns nearer to normality."
