SportsAid helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early stages of their careers.
SportsAid has made four exciting appointments to its Board of Trustees. The newly-recruited members will be welcomed to the current Board on an initial three-year term with Chris Baillieu MBE, Chair of SportsAid, declaring himself ‘delighted’ at the additions. Michelle Moore, Mike Westcott, Richard Glasson and Ronnie Denholm have been invited to join the existing trustees and support the charity’s work helping the next generation.
SportsAid athletes supported by MyLotto24 received expert insight and guidance from double Paralympic champion Libby Clegg, Olympic silver medalist Keri-anne Payne and Great Britain high-jumper Isobel Pooley at a workshop focused on broadening their knowledge and preparing them for the next steps in their promising sporting careers last Wednesday (3 May). The Winners of Tomorrow Fund was formed in 2014.
Short-track speed-skating sensation Elise Christie joined Olympic silver medallists Leon Taylor and Richard Hounslow for a special workshop to share their insight and experience with young SportsAid athletes, supported by the Nottingham Building Society, aspiring to be the country’s next generation of sporting heroes at the City Ground on Thursday (27 April). The Nottingham has been a partner of SportsAid since 2013.
SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
