The British ski and snowboard national foundation’s #backingbritishsnowsport summer fundraising campaign has received more than £10k in donations this summer.
The incredible generosity of fans and supporters of British skiing and snowboarding has been on show this summer as people from across the world have given their backing to the charity’s on-going support to talented British athletes.
As a nation, Britain is fortunate to enjoy high levels of continued financial investment into elite sport, with the occasion this weekend of the nation’s 1000th Olympic and Paralympic medal since the introduction in 1997 of National Lottery funding showing the massive impact it has had on British sporting success. At the highest levels, funding and investment from UK Sport and the National Lottery has helped to propel British snowsport athletes to levels of success never seen before. Nevertheless, many athletes, particularly those in the earlier stages of their careers, face tough financial decisions as they progress in their own careers and build towards world class performances.
Snowsport in Britain is indebted to the work of BSSNF, whose commitment to supporting new generations of athletes to develop and prosper continued to build the pool of talent available to the nation. Funding and grants made by the Foundation play a vital role in reducing barriers for young athletes and creating new opportunities for success at every level and in every disciple of snowsport.
