Action For Sport – The Journey
Action For Sport is determined to prevent poverty being a barrier to children and young people playing sport.
Action For Sport founders Andrew Kenure and Clive Michallat saw poverty first-hand in the secondary school where they both worked. Some children were unable to participate in PE lessons because their families couldn’t afford the sporting boots, trainers and kit that they needed. Some children were even missing school on PE days to avoid the embarrassment of asking for kit from their teachers. This was the motivation which led Andrew and Clive to establish Action For Sport.
The Charity encourages sports companies, the public, sporting clubs and other organisations to donate unwanted or outgrown boots, trainers and kit. These are then checked and sanitised before being distributed in schools to disadvantaged children. The response the team has received has been fantastic. The heart-warming stories of children’s newfound self-esteem, of making new friends and joining sporting clubs only confirms that the charity needs to reach more children.
Action For Sport has saved families living in poverty hundreds of thousands of pounds and has saved hundreds of tonnes of sporting items from going to landfill. Action For Sport have changed so many lives for the better, by giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy sport and all the benefits that sport can bring.
