Trinity House will be sponsoring the charity, in order to provide financial help for aspiring sports stars aged between 12 and 18. Training, attending events, buying equipment and obtaining specialist advice can be very expensive, and there is little support available to help with the costs, therefore we are delighted to help Cotswolds great young athletes with access to equipment, coaching, sports camps, competition fees, travel and accommodation costs.
The charity was set up in 2015 by a group of friends passionate about supporting youth sport with Michael Edwards, known as Eddie the Eagle, their patron. The trustees for the charity include retired university lecturer Mike Deakin, age group Great Britain duathlete Fiona Carter and Jonathan Eaton, employed in the motor industry.
