Entrepreneur James Kean, 49, invites 300 local kids into his home each week to play football and a host of other sports. Dad-of-four James, above middle, from East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, opened up a sports complex in his garden when he realised there was a shortage of facilities in the town. Children attend karate, boxing and football sessions free of charge at the Kean Construction boss’s home. Iain King, who nominated him, said: “James thrives on seeing kids learn about diet, fitness, discipline and respect.”

James Kean is a trustee of East Kilbride Community Trust.
