The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity focused on introducing young people to sport and physical activity. Sport is a fantastic way to get involved and stay fit. It was a great passion of William’s.
The trust is supporting two initiatives at £5000 each aimed at primary age children. The first £5000 is a programme in Kingston upon Thames that teaches co ordination and play, very much involving parents. Colourful equipment is provided with training on how to use it in the home – there is a focus on helping young fathers on how to play with their children. The second £5000 is a programme in Southwark which provides coaching for young children in gymnastics.
The thought behind supporting primary schools is hopefully to catch children young and infect them with a passion for sport before other distractions loom too large!
