MAKE A DONATION TO SPORTSAID

Financial barriers pose the main challenge for SportsAid athletes. They receive no funding, other than that from the charity, which means they rely heavily on their parents to cover their training and competition costs. One-off and regular donations can make a real difference.

NAANA OPPON: “MY FAMILY MOTIVATE ME TO KEEP ON GOING - THEY ARE VITAL”
26 Mar 2020

After being likened to USA prodigy Simone Biles at such a young age, Milton Keynes gymnast Naana Oppon is staying grounded as she aims to reach the top of her sport. The 13-year-old tumbler’s potential seems to have no limits as she has already gained traction on a national and world stage so far. Naana managed to gain a silver medal in last year’s World Championships having won her first British title when she was just eight.

SportsAid's support meant so much to me and I’ll always be very grateful for what they’ve done.
