City captain Russ Martin on a personal connection with Crohn's & Colitis UKNORWICH City captain Russ Martin identifies a 'special charity' in Crohn's & Colitis UK as he backs the Aviva Community Fund.
He'd love to see the charity apply for a grant from the fund, which is offering community causes the chance to apply for up to £25,000 in funding.
"It's a special charity for me, because I struggle with Colitis myself and they raise awareness for IBD and help raise a lot of money for research and funds.
"They are the first port of call for a lot of people who have been diagnosed with it."
Russ is a champion for the charity, along with other high-profile sports men and women, such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Lewis Moody and, most recently, Darren Fletcher.
