Fresh from winning the hearts of many across the country Millionaire Billericay Town FC owner now turned philanthropist Glenn Tamplin has shared a rare insight into his private life.
Earlier this week viewers on This Morning heard how Tamplin helped 7year old Harry Parker who has a rare form of cerebral palsy.
Harry’s parents Danielle and Glen, revealed that they had raised a few thousand pounds towards the surgery when steel tycoon Tamplin stepped in, He ended up forking out £45,000 to help Harry achieve his dream of kicking a ball.
Inviting us into opulent family home, he shares his strong beliefs as a born again Christian. ‘I pray and meditate every morning, it’s a key part of my day’
Talking about what Christianity meant to him he added “Its a power greater than myself directing my day being selfless and helping others”
Inviting us into his holy acres at Chase Meadows which is dubbed ‘The Upper Room At Chase Meadows’ he explained “We used to gather around 15 to 20 people here but that’s gone back to the church in Loughton at the moment as we swap it around”
Talking about seeking God he added “What have you got to lose”
Tamplin’s philanthropy has been welcomed broadly with a few Twitter users already urging for a Royal gong to be bestowed upon Tamplin who could soon be Sir Tamplin.
Twitter user Darren Cummings tweeted “These are the sort of people that should be knighted ! Philanthropy at its best ?”
Tamplin has laughed off these suggestions as he told us ‘It is all about the Billericay community and bringing people together, I am just doing the little that I can to make the world a better place’
