At the start of their year of fundraising, the Fisical Sports Coaching team said: “Working with 100s of children day in day out and the enjoyment that brings to us all seeing their development in a wide variation of sports has inspired us to conquer numerous sporting challenges throughout 2019 in hope of raising money for children who suffer with Cancer. We will be helping towards research, improving treatment and finding cures so these children have the best possible care and opportunities in life.

We have decided funds raised in this year’s challenges will go to Candlelighters, a charity that work wonders supporting children and their families suffering from cancer. This charity is also very close to the heart for Tom and James as Candlelighters supported a close friend Chris Smith and his family in their times of need.”

Speaking about encouraging other businesses to support Candlelighters,

“Go for it ! As well as helping people who really need you , you gain a sense of immense achievement ?”
