We joined forces with SportsAid to ensure that our contribution is in line with the overall vision for the future of British sport.
OCS has a long-term partnership with SportsAid which enhances the company's long-running Young Sports Person Awards by using SportsAid's expertise to select the athletes who benefit from them.
The awards are an annual scheme, established in 1998, recognising and rewarding outstanding young athletes. In that time it has given more than £200,000 to help over 100 deserving young people. Athletes who benefited at an early stage of their careers include Jamie Spence, James Wilstrop, Todd Cooper, Rebecca Cooke, Fiona Pennie, Beth Tweddle and Paul Drinkall.
"Although we’re a large international company, we’re still a family firm, and we pride ourselves on a decade of searching out talented young athletes who could really benefit from a boost in the early stages of their career.
"SportsAid has the same objective and passion to make a difference, so it makes sense to work with the experts to ensure our funding goes to the athletes who will benefit most. We joined forces with SportsAid to ensure that our contribution is in line with the overall vision for the future of British sport.”
