How Does It Work?
Actively search for an individual to sponsor your child.
This may be any individual that pays a standard rate of tax
on their income that isn’t a family member of the athlete.
Download our Gift Aid Form &
Personal Sports Fund Application Form from our website here.
Fill out both forms. You fill out The Personal Sports Fund form with yours and your child’s details. The sponsor of your child fills out the gift aid form which allows us to claim gift aid on the sponsored amount.
Once the account is open, send in a sum of money to donated to the child’s sports fund. We will then apply to HMRC for gift aid to be claimed on the money.
Enjoy knowing that your money can go a lot further in helping your child reach their true potential!
We deal with all the behind the scenes, as well as answering any questions you might have.
I have a small family run hotel in the heart of the Peak District. I'm an avid skier and have completed a number of instructor courses and ski leading courses. I have a son that was heavily involved in the ski racing world and skied for many teams in the uk and Austria being based in Austria for 5 consecutive season, so I have first had knowledge of the cost of putting your child through intensive training programs both home and abroad.
I came up with the initial idea of the WSF but soon realised it needed more I put so with myself and Adam and a number of professionals we eventually constructed a charity that works and really helps the parents of our young wither sports athletes.
I was relatively late coming to the winter sports world as it was Elliott that got me into Skiing in the first instance when I was about 21 years old. I was a swimmer and Triathlete to an international level when I was younger.
My main job is a Financial Planner and Wealth Manager dealing with clients Investment and Pension needs as well as protection and tax issues so I have a good grasp on Tax and the benefits around which the charity can offer. I am also a retained firefighter in the small village where I work called Hathersage in the beautiful Peak District.
Outside of work I enjoy keeping fit (although I’m nothing like I used to be) by cycling, running going to the Gym and I love a good movie!
