‘Tis the season of meaningful thoughts and actions and ‘Christmas Wishes’. The wish from the Personal Best Foundation this season is as our purpose states: to provide opportunities and hope for disadvantaged children and young people through the power of athletics.
Christmas can be a particularly hard time for disadvantaged children and Christmas 2022 will bring added pressures with the cost of living crisis. Already, over 4 million children and young people are at risk of being excluded from sport and physical activity. That puts their mental, physical and emotional health at risk too. Their family’s poverty isn’t their fault. And being from an ethnically diverse community shouldn’t matter. But inequality and poverty mean opportunities can be out of reach. Together, we can change that. Together we can change young lives.
£20 could pay for a young person facing financial hardship to complete a Leading Athletics Workshop and take their first steps into volunteering, helping them to build confidence and establish friendships.
Your meaningful support will help us give hope and opportunity – the best Christmas Wishes.
