Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit the #Thirty30WST JustGiving page and for your  donations for this challenge in support of The Women's Sport Trust.

I am a passionate believer that, regardless of gender, everyone can achieve their potential in sport and beyond.

Knowing that sport is one of the most important public arenas that we have – it’s everywhere. Which means that sport has the potential to drive social change, and I am committed to making a contribution to accelerate this change. The Commission on the Future of Women's Sport Report which studied investment between Jan 2010 and Aug 2011, established that just 0.5% sponsorship was for women's sport.

I'll be attending and then promoting 30 women’s sports in 30 consecutive days, from 28th August to 27th September 2015, and supporting The Women’s Sport Trust (http://www.womenssporttrust.com) whose mission is to raise the visibility and increase the impact of women’s sport through promoting role models, increasing media coverage and improving funding.

By increasing the number and quality of stories in the media, showcasing strong female role models and achieving equality in funding, sport can tell a story about what’s possible if you have a level playing field. But it can only do this more effectively if it has more visibility and there are more individuals and organisations willing to make investment.

Thank you for your support to help level the playing field.
