The Youth Sport Trust has formed an
exciting new partnership with Team Superschools (TSS) to help inspire young
people to realise their full potential.
TSS is a fun,
inspirational and exciting project that raises funds for primary schools using
the power of sport. Owned by Olympic champions Jason Gardener and Darren
Campbell, TSS sees international sports stars go into schools to meet with
students. These TSS Athlete Ambassadors engage pupils by leading sponsored
exercise sessions and having individual photographs taken to raise funds.
Over the past six years, almost 450,000 pupils have taken part in a TSS event with over £655,000 having been raised and retained for schools. With the Youth Sport Trust celebrating its 20thanniversary, TSS is looking to raise funds for the charity. Exactly 5% of the money raised retained by TSS will go directly to the Youth Sport Trust.
Youth Sport Trust External Relations Director Phil Chamberlain said: "We are excited to be partnering with Team Superschools. We know that elite athletes and their stories can really engage young people to help them build confidence and develop life skills so we fully support the work they are doing. We are also delighted that TSS will be donating 5% of the money they raise to the Youth Sport Trust. This fundraising drive will support our mission to build a brighter future for young people through PE and school sport."
TSS owner and Olympic champion Jason
Gardener said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with the Youth Sport
Trust. TSS is all about inspiring young people through sport and we know that
is what the Youth Sport Trust is all about. We are really passionate about
using sport to improve the lives of even more young people and that is why we
are proud to be fundraising for the Youth Sport Trust on their 20thanniversary."
TSS is looking to work with schools in: Bedfordshire, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Cambridgeshire, Dorset, East Sussex, Essex, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Herefordshire, Herts, Kent, Leicestershire, London, Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire, Surrey, West Mids, Wiltshire and Worcestershire.
