The snowsports charity that supports young and upcoming athletes with their funding and mental health needs, has launched a new personal and corporate scheme that offers a variety of opportunities to help change lives.
There’s seven different levels of sponsorship available, starting at €500 annually and going up to €30,000, all offering young athletes opportunities to improve whilst providing a whole host of valuable assets and activities to those funding them.
Founder of the Ellie Soutter Foundation, Tony Soutter, said: “Our team work passionately to change lives and enhance careers in snowsports for young elite athletes and we are so grateful for everyone’s support. We welcome donations of any size as every Euro really helps”.
Maisie Potter, Team GB athlete, said: “As a self-funded athlete The Ellie Soutter Foundation support makes this career path possible for me. With this being an important year, I would be at a huge disadvantage without it.”
Charlie Lane, junior freestyle snowboarder, said: “I am so proud that TESF support and recognise my dedication, focus and commitment that I have to do for my snowboarding in trying to reach my goals.”
