Spencer is actively involved in The Michael Matthews Foundation, a charity set up by his family in memory of his brother Michael who sadly passed away at the young age of 22. Funds raised by the charity help create an education and future for the local children in Tanzania. Spencer has recently paid several visits to Tanzania, building schools to provide the children with a safe learning environment and the gift of education.
