What does the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation do?

THE couple have set up the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation to help children in need.

It aims to give under-privileged kids advice on nutrition, education and experience.

Rose said: “This program is very close to our hearts because Kate and I know Blessings in a Backpack fills a crucial void for children who might otherwise go hungry. I can’t expect to play good golf if I’m not properly nourished so how can we expect kids to go a full weekend with out enough to eat and then be able to focus on learning the next school week.”
