SportsAid is seeking new trustees to lead on and develop the charity’s work helping the next generation of British sporting talent. The newly-recruited members will join the Board of Trustees as SportsAid looks to build on the success of its 40th anniversary celebrations in 2016 and support British athletes towards their many milestones on the way to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang and Tokyo.
SportsAid athletes Tom Darling and Crispin Beaumont followed in the footsteps of Olympic champions Ben Ainslie and Giles Scott by winning gold at the Youth Sailing World Championships. Ben and Giles, both previous SportsAid recipients, also kicked off their careers with victories at the Youth Sailing World Championships. The Championships contains the world’s leading sailors aged 18 and under.
Every year, thousands and thousands of runners shed blood, sweat and tears as they look to complete the London Marathon. The race can act as a life-changing experience for many, especially those fundraising for charity, as they push hard to generate sponsorship money while growing an even greater affinity for the cause they represent. That is very much the case for Team SportsAid runner Sarah Ottery.
