Sport Allies

When we launched our first calendar in 2009, we had no idea that it would bring us so many new friends and supporters around the world. People who would not just help fund our sport but give us a way to put something back.

Last year we decided to join the fight against homophobia, and were moved by your response. Now we hope to build on that response through Sport Allies, a programme to reach out to young people challenged by bullying, homophobia or low self-esteem.

We have created Sport Allies in partnership with a registered national charity and with support from senior sports figures like double Olympian and World Medallist rower Tom Solesbury. As well as going into schools, we plan to create online content accessible to young people all over the world, linked to resources that will tell them how to get the local support they need.
