This year’s round of a sports sponsorship scheme for up-and-coming athletes is open for applications.
Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions scheme, now in its fifth year, has so far helped more than 1,000 athletes with free gym access, financial support and expert training advice and competition costs.
In 2019, participants had the opportunity to join sessions hosted across the country with talks from industry professionals and Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
Sports stars supported in Southwark include fencer Daniel McGlade and tennis player Jotham Tonge-Bobia.
The director of the scheme, Duncan Jefford, said: “We are proud to have invested over one million pounds in helping upcoming athletes across the country to achieve their goals.
“As part of the scheme, athletes will benefit from mentoring sessions throughout the year that will provide them with support, advice and guidance.
“We have exciting plans for the future of the scheme and I would encourage any athletes from Southwark that are looking not just for funding but also mentoring for their future sports career to apply for Everyone Active’s Sporting Champions scheme.”
