Sarah de Carvalho - Leading positive change
This blog continues our series on how we are 'leading positive change', where we hear from the people and charities we have supported to share their story of our journey with them.
We focus on the impact of our work with the It's A Penalty Campaign. It's A Penalty is a non-profit organisation that harnesses the power of sport to prevent exploitation and human trafficking globally.

"Katherine's courage to tackle enormous challenging social issues and her entrepreneurial spirit has helped It's A Penalty to become a global movement around major sporting events against exploitation and trafficking", says de Carvalho.
Watch our video to hear Sarah's story in full.
