Connect with Care

We allow millions of people to be better connected. However, as enablers and providers of connectivity, C4L also hold responsibility to ensure the internet is used safely and correctly by all

The 40-week scheme, which is sponsored by Colocation, Connectivity, Cloud and Communications provider C4L, includes a combination of classroom and outdoor activities delivered by the Cherries’ Community Sports Trust coaches to help enforce the message.

Heading into its second year, MacDonald will be the face of the initiative once it starts again in September.

“I’m really looking forward to getting started on the Connect with Care project and visiting the children at local schools,” he said.

“I’ve heard good things about what the project achieved last season and I’m proud to be associated with it.

“Being safe on the internet is something everyone should be aware of and I take it into consideration when using my social media accounts because, as footballers, we are role models to a lot of young people.”

Simon Mewett, CEO of C4L, said, “Being a successful internet service provider means that a lot of the UK’s internet runs on our network.

“We are proud of this achievement because it allows millions of people to be better connected. However, as enablers and providers of connectivity, C4L also hold responsibility to ensure the internet is used safely and correctly by all.

“With that in mind, we’re incredibly proud to be working in partnership with AFC Bournemouth to provide Connect with Care.

“As a father myself, I hold high regard for teaching children how to be safe online, and commend the club and Community Sports Trust for delivering such a great scheme.”
