Andy Farrell, OBE

Andy Farrell is the former Wigan and Great Britain captain, England rugby union coach and current assistant Ireland coach. "I feel honoured to be an Ambassador for Duchenne UK; a charity set up to help raise much-needed awareness of the fatal disease Duchenne muscular dystrophy".

"When Andy Johnson (of Joining Jack) asked me to help the first thing that came to mind was my own two sons, as this mainly affects boys, and if anything was ever to happen to them I would hope and pray that I would also get support from friends. AJ has been a great friend since we started to play rugby together and to help him with this charity is a great privilege."
