The Kent Trust for Youth Sport has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving, which encourages people and businesses to give their time, money or voice to charity for one day.
#GivingTuesday – 2 December 2014 – will provide a charitable antidote to the pre-Christmas consumer boom, falling directly after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Kent Trust for Youth Sport is taking part in the campaign to celebrate our Partners and Supporters.
Simon Philip, Chair of the Kent Trust for Youth Sport, said “The Trust is very grateful to the support and generosity of its Partners and Supporters. Each partnership makes it possible for the Trust to offer opportunities to individuals and organisations to help young people participate in sport.”
Andrew Lawrence, CEO of Questor Insurance, said “We are proud to be supporting this great charity and in particular Molly Harvey, as she progresses through the England Judo Talent Development Programme.”
Molly Harvey is supported by the Kent Trust for Youth Sport through a Questor Award. Molly is a rising Judo star, currently in the England Judo Talent Development Programme and has already represented both England and Great Britain.
#GivingTuesday in the UK is led by the Charities Aid Foundation. Leaders from businesses, charities and the media have joined them to explore how they can boost donations to charity and volunteering and create a giving movement in the UK. Other Partners and Supporters of the Kent Trust for Youth Sport include Alan Firmin Ltd, Kent County Council and the Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club.
