SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
Marlow Rowing Club’s Ben Simon, 17, from Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire, has been awarded £1,000 by SportsAid’s Bucks Sporting Lunch Club. Created in 2011, the club is a way for local individuals, businesses and trusts to support young, talented athletes in Buckinghamshire with training, travel or equipment costs.
Justin Taylor-Tipton is excited to be hosting The SportsAid Charity Jam at Stoke Ski Centre to help give something back to the charity that has supported him through the early stages of his career on the snow. Freestyle ski star Justin, already an English champion at under-16 and open age level, has been a SportsAid athlete for two years.
SportsAid supporters managed to raise over an incredible £40,000 during the charity’s inaugural SportsAid Week. The initiative was such a major success that it has led to the charity confirming SportsAid Week will now become an annual event with next year’s dates announced for Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October 2017!
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
