“SportsAid were a lifeline of funding for every day expenses and those costly competitions. Their support was crucial to my own success.” [James Hickman Five Time World Champion Swimmer]
“I received the first of my SportsAid grants as a junior in 1987. Quite simply, without money I would have remained an aspiring young sportsman, but with it I became a World and Olympic Champion. That’s how much SportsAid means to me.” [Sir Matthew Pinsent – Four-time Olympic Gold Medallist]
“Lottery money has given British sport a fantastic boost, but it can’t do everything. That’s why the work of SportsAid is so important. If you are young, ambitious and just beginning to experience success, SportsAid is where you go for help.” [Sir Steve Redgrave – Five-time Olympic Gold Medallist]
