Katie Tipple

Philanthropy Manager

Katie is delighted to join the Sported Team, developing philanthropic giving helping to fund Sported’s vital work.


Having studied sustainable development at university and volunteered in East Timor, Katie was motivated to join the charity sector 10 years ago focusing largely on international development and child protection.


A qualified ChildLine Counsellor, Katie is passionate about the role of sport in development and particularly the use of sport to improve mental health, overall well being and social change. Driven by this passion, Katie is also a qualified children’s and adult yoga teacher and is training to teach children mindfulness.


When Katie isn’t on a yoga matt, she is happiest hiking in the mountains – especially the Sierra Nevada’s in California!
