Sport Ambassadors

As a method of engaging young people, sport is one of the key ways The Prince’s Trust encourages many young people to take their first steps on their journey to a brighter future.

Sporting stars have a strong affinity with the young people we help, familiar as they are with battling adversity to reach their goals and often struggling to overcome setbacks before achieving success.

Prince’s Trust programmes around sport are always hugely popular for young people, but sporting events, like our Palace to Palace cycle ride and walk, also help to raise huge amounts of funds for The Trust.

Sporting stars who act as Ambassadors inspire both fundraisers and young people. Chris Froome took time out from Le Tour de France to send encouragement to Palace to Palace riders alongside Paralympian David Weir, footballing legend Thierry Henry is a Trustee of The Prince’s Trust and England Manager Gareth Southgate OBE has attended fundraising trading days.
