Sported selected as one of three charity partners for the Times and Sunday Times 2020 Christmas Appeal

By Sported |  28th November 2020

Each year the Times and Sunday Times run a Christmas Charity Appeal which promotes three charities to their readership through a series of stories published in the paper and encourages readers to donate to support the work of those charities. 


Sported is delighted to be selected as one of the three charities for 2020 Christmas Appeal alongside FareShare and the Tusk Trust.

We hope being part of the appeal will help mobilise public support for community sports groups up and down the country who use sport to create change. We want to harness the community spirit fostered through the pandemic to boost local volunteering and generate the funds needed to help communities sustainably rebuild and respond to the impact of Covid-19.

Tom Burstow, Deputy CEO said,

Being selected as the Charity Appeal beneficiary creates a massive opportunity for us in 2 ways; firstly to recognise and promote the work of the groups who make up the Sported network and secondly, to raise much-needed funds for us to continue to provide our services free of charge to all 2,600 member groups.
