Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge
Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge became SportsAid’s Patron in 2013. She presented the charity’s prestigious One-to-Watch Award at the SportsBall that year and met many of its supporters. Working with SportsAid, she is a champion of future champions, helping young people to get the support they need.
I received the first of my SportsAid awards as a junior in 1987. Quite simply, without the money I would have remained an aspiring young sportsman, but with it I became a world and Olympic champion. That's how much SportsAid means to me.
Sir Matthew Pinsent
Proudly supporting the next GENERATION
Athletes who need SportsAid’s help get no other funding. They rely entirely on their parents for financial support, transport, kit, nutrition, you name it! The really amazing thing about this is that many already represent Great Britain and if they can continue doing so, are likely to become our future Olympic, Paralympic and world champions.
By supporting SportsAid at the SportsBall you will be helping to transform the lives of disabled and non-disabled young people across Britain – young people with huge potential but who are at risk of dropping out of sport because of the lack of recognition they receive and the huge financial pressure they are under.
