British Canoeing are delighted to announce that so far 19 athletes have been recognised by SportsAid and have received a grant to support their development.
SportsAid Week is taking place this week; 24th - 30th September. SportsAid Week is a fundraising drive designed to support the country’s brightest sporting prospects as they strive to represent Team GB and Paralympics GB at future Olympic and Paralympic Games.
SportsAid is a charity that helps young sports people overcome the financial challenges they face in their bid to become Britain’s next generation of sporting heroes. The charity raises donations from partner organisations and then distributes these funds to aspirant athletes in the region of the donor.
SportsAid is a great funding source for athletes on our England Talent Programme. British Canoeing would like to thank SportsAid and the partner organisations who have funded our athletes this year, this financial assistance will assist athletes with essential training costs such as equipment, competition costs and travel cost.
