SportsAid is seeking new trustees to lead on and develop the charity’s work helping the next generation of British sporting talent. The newly-recruited members will join the Board of Trustees as SportsAid looks to build on the success of its 40th anniversary celebrations in 2016 and support British athletes towards their many milestones on the way to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang and Tokyo.
SportsAid athletes Tom Darling and Crispin Beaumont followed in the footsteps of Olympic champions Ben Ainslie and Giles Scott by winning gold at the Youth Sailing World Championships. Ben and Giles, both previous SportsAid recipients, also kicked off their careers with victories at the Youth Sailing World Championships. The Championships contains the world’s leading sailors aged 18 and under.
