Message from the Andy Biddle Youth Sport Foundation
Like most charities, we had to cancel planned fundraising events in 2020 and unfortunately as a result, suspend our grant application process.
However, the winter period brought better news; construction company Wates granted us £500, and just before Christmas, we were informed we were one of 10 charities out of 200 that applied, to be awarded £1,000 from construction recruitment firm O'Neill & Brennan.
Just a reminder, since we set up the charity, we have awarded over £11,000 to 10 local youth sport causes. I know Bids would be proud.
We hope to begin planning for fundraising events as soon as possible so please
watch our events page for more information. Most importantly, our grant
application process has now opened so we can begin again helping support
youth sport in Sutton Coldfield in Bids name. Please go to our grants page
for more information.
The Trustees, Andy Biddle Youth Sports Foundation.
One of the main reasons the ABYSF was founded in 2018 was to provide potential sports coaches and mentors to improve their coaching skills by attending accredited training schemes provided by organisations like the ECB and FA.
We are keen to help clubs or individuals provide quality sports coaching and participation in a variety of sports in the local area.
