Host and charity Founder, Lance Haggith first established Sports Traider as a charity after witnessing the benefits sports offered to disadvantaged children and young offenders. Research supports huge benefits in enabling people to access sports, with a dual purpose, firstly to allow them to become active and secondly to help improve their self-confidence, self-esteem and social skills.
Sports Traider Charity supports the whole community by offering work experience to the disabled, young people, the long-term unemployed, disadvantaged groups, and ex-offenders. So far over 3,000 days of work experience have been provided.
Sports Traider charity shops are manned by volunteers, many of whom are young adults with learning difficulties. The shops provide volunteers with work experience as well as a reference to help them gain future paid employment.
EverythingBranded supports Sports Traider charity through sponsorship of events such as Hoops Aid to help the charity achieve its goals. One of these goals is in the rehabilitation of ex-offenders, engaging them in both the retail and community projects.
