About Anders Foundation
The Anders Foundation was formed as a legacy to Anders Nielsen (British Olympian and national Badminton champion) who sadly lost his life in 2010 after a year-long fight with cancer.
To celebrate Anders’ determination to succeed and admirable work ethic, highlighted by the international success he achieved in his Badminton career, we aim to support young people of all abilities, both disabled and able bodied, to achieve their sporting goals.
The Anders Foundation will award monies throughout the UK to able bodied and disabled individuals and clubs / institutions on a case by case basis assessed by the trustees and in conjunction with selected experts from within the designated sport or activity. Badminton will feature prominently given Anders’ background but all worthwhile causes, such as Riding For The Disabled for example, will be considered.
