We do this by managing a professionally run chain of charity sports shops staffed by employees and volunteers. The charity using the funds to invest in sports participation projects as below:
provide free transport to and from venues, either by way of a mini bus or individuals travelling in cars;
provide recycled push bikes to make local venues accessible;
provide sportswear to ensure that activities are available to all, which may include boots, trainers, jogging bottoms and tops, and more.
use proceeds generated from its retail units to fund coaching, access to facilities such as sports clubs and gyms, and fund the transport required to get talented but disadvantaged athletes to training.
provide tents and equipment for unprivileged children to have a holiday.
provide specialised wheelchairs to enable disabled people to participate in wheelchair sports.
help regenerate local shopping areas by utilising otherwise empty retail units.
Sports Traider Charity acquires redundant sportswear and equipment, which can be given to disadvantaged children and young persons, free of charge, to help them participate in their chosen sport, again helping to remove any barriers.
The charity recycles sports clothes and equipment, collecting from schools, sporting facilities and sports companies whether the product is second hand or new. Counterfeit goods are also received via Trading Standards departments and “rebranded” to ensure that the product is legal; encouraging sports companies to recycle old stock by donating it to the cause therefore significantly reducing the pressure on landfill.
