If you like what I’m doing, donate to Sported!
Having written an Evening Standard article about fundraising for sporting challenges last week, it’s about time I made a concerted effort to share my passion for the eXerK chosen charity, and ask for your generosity in supporting them.
Sported is a charity I’ve been following for a few years now, and which completely aligns with the importance I place in physical activity. Their focus is in Sport for Development, using sport as a tool to engage disadvantaged young people and communities, to help improve lives in a sustainable way.
They work with local sports clubs, supporting community role models who run these clubs, ensuring children and young adults have access to sport. Sported highlight the benefit of sports for education, employability and crime prevention.
Leaders of sports clubs become members of the Sported community, gaining access to valuable funding, training and access to volunteers from various professions who help mentor the leaders.
For every £1 Sported give to their members, on average the members go on to raise a further £3 in external funding, all thanks to Sported’s unique range of business support and capacity-enhancing member services.
I have worked hard this year to make physical activity as accessible as possible for busy Londoners, and I love that so many of you have been part of it. If you would like to share the fun and strength you have found through sport, please do donate so we can spread the joy a little bit further.
Next week I’ll be sharing what the Sported charity team have completed this year – their own 52in52. Absolutely amazing, and as a team they have accomplished some amazing feats.
Please donate whatever you can spare to help more kids get more active: justgiving.com/annie-exerk1
