Official Charity Partner - SportsAid
SportsAid is the only national charity of its kind - supporting young British sportsmen and women who aspire to be the nation's next Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth or world champions. Each year, SportsAid helps over 1,000 athletes, the vast majority aged 12 to 18, by providing them with financial support and recognition as they’re starting out in their sporting careers. The typical value of a SportsAid Award is £1,000. These athletes are the UK's brightest prospects having been nominated to SportsAid by the national governing bodies of more than 60 sports. Most of them receive no funding, other than that from SportsAid, which means they rely heavily on their parents for support. Transportation, equipment, training, accommodation and competition costs are where the majority of SportsAid athletes use the financial award from the charity.
Prior to the arrival of UK Sport in 1997, SportsAid helped the country’s elite athletes before focusing on the next generation. Previous recipients of the charity’s support include Sir Mo Farah, Dame Jess Ennis-Hill, Sir Steve Redgrave, Baroness Grey-Thompson, Dame Katherine Grainger, Dame Sarah Storey, Dame Kelly Holmes, Sir Chris Hoy, David Weir CBE, Laura Kenny CBE, Paula Radcliffe MBE, Daley Thompson CBE, Max Whitlock MBE and Adam Peaty MBE.
