SportsAid Cymru Wales has distributed more than £1.2 million in awards to athletes in over 30 different sports since its formation almost 30 years ago. SportsAid Cymru Wales has its own charity number (1135438) and company number (07008455).
Most award recipients say it is not just the financial support that gives them a boost but also the recognition. Hurdler Colin Jackson, cyclist Nicole Cooke, sprinter Jamie Baulch, Paralympian David Roberts and sailor Hannah Mills were all helped by SportsAid.
SportsAid Cymru Wales works closely with the governing bodies in each sport and Sport Wales. It is thanks to the ongoing generosity of organisations and individuals that the charity has maintained its proud record of assistance for nearly three decades.
