Both of our founding trustees have worked in and around charities and events for several years and had first hand experience of how employees physical and mental health were effected through lack of regular exercise and the great outdoors. It was often apparent that those with physical goals built into their day to day lives seemed happier and more productive at work.
We were literally given the perfect case study during the Covid-19 pandemic although we would have never asked for it! The lockdown showed in no uncertain terms that being locked in without the regular enjoyment of sport, our work colleagues and friends we live much unhealthier, unhappier lives.

It was our existing passion and the continued battle during the 2020/2021 pandemic that led us to launch the Sport for Charity Trust. The main aims are to help improve physical and mental health for all people in the UK and to educate businesses and employees of the huge rewards that come from taking part in sporting events and raising money for charities that truly matter to specific individuals.
