We support local communities through recycling and repurposing sports equipment to help disadvantaged members of our community get more active, and find purpose through volunteering support via our local stores.
Sports Traider Charity exists to give young people employment and sports participation opportunities. In doing so they gain confidence, self-esteem, retail skills and improve mental and physical health.
Sports Traider Charity will provide or assist in the provision of facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation or other leisure time occupation of children and adults who have need of such facilities by reason of disability, financial hardship and/or social circumstances with the object of improving their conditions of life.
Sports Traider Charity has been very successful in including ex-offenders, engaging them in both the retail and community projects, where, together with contributing their volunteering hours, they can discuss and talk about prison life, social disadvantage, alcohol and drug misuse and abuse. The peer support that they get is proving, in many cases, to be very beneficial to their rehabilitation process.
