Last Friday evening (7 July) provided an opportunity for Shanghai's business community with a keen interest in the power of football to meet and share experiences with young football coaches from Everton.

These 15 coaches had spent a week coaching football skills to local needy Chinese kids both in Shanghai and Yangzhou as part of Children's University outreach.

Mark Upton, CEO of Children's University China, was delighted with the opportunity for the coaches to gain a wider understanding of life in China. The coaches have now returned to UK and will continue volunteer activities with needy kids in Merseyside.

Mark was particularly thankful to St. James's Place who hosted this event at their Jing'an offices. Children's University China is a British Chamber Shanghai chosen CSR charity this year.
