The Foundation relies on donations and revenues generated by our fundraising events to maintain our support for young people in their quest for sporting excellence.


Initially, the Foundation was established to provide funding for young people in sports within the Fylde parishes of Ribby-with-Wrea and Westby-with-Plumptons. Due to the success of the Foundation the area has been expanded to incorporate the greater Fylde and Preston area.
