Meet our Latest SportsAid Athletes...

We are delighted to announce the latest 51 athletes to be sponsored by our ongoing partnership with SportsAid. 

As part of our Pitching In investment programme, in partnership with SportsAid - the charity which supports aspiring athletes - we are providing British athletes with financial support, recognition and personal development opportunities. Each one of the athletes receives an annual award which contributes towards costs such as travel, accommodation and equipment. Find out what this kind of investment means to Cheyanne Evans-Grey, one of our Ladbrokes employees and Olympic hopeful sprinter: 

Cheyanne represents just one of many in our diverse roster of talent. Among those receiving support in 2020 are 10 athletes, five para-athletes, three hockey players, three rowers and three rugby union players as well as many more from other sports including boxing, wheelchair basketball and skiing. Get to know them today:

  

Over the coming months, we will be touching base with many of the 51 athletes, including track cyclist Georgia Holt. You can find out more about her inspiring journey here:
