real play Ambassador - Mark Hunter MBE, Olympic and World Rowing Champion

Mark's rowing career started at the age of 14 at the Poplar Blackwall & District Rowing Club having been introduced to the sport by his father. He is also a lifelong fan of West Ham (through the good times and the bad!).

As Ambassador, Mark will take a very active role in real play. He firmly believes it is a unique way to engage and support families who just need a little help and has potentially huge outcomes.
