benenden health on board as lead partner for Active York

4th March 2014

Benenden health has pledged their support as lead partner of Active York - the city’s sport and active leisure partnership.

As the Active York Sports Awards 2014 are launched, benenden health’s support will ensure the awards dinner and Active York’s Fund For The Gifted scheme move forward for the benefit of York’s sporting community.

Active York’s Acting Chair Keith Morris said: “This is great news for the future of Active York and by consequence the future of York’s athletes.  Having benenden health as lead partner means Active York can support more of the city’s up and coming athletes through our Fund For The Gifted financial grant scheme as well as honouring our sporting community at the Active York Sports Awards on 9 April.”

City of York Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism and member of the Active York Board, Councillor Sonja Crisp said: “I am delighted we have been able to attract benenden health to help support the excellent work that Active York is doing for York’s sporting community.  The strategic partnership with Benenden Health will enable Active York to build on one of its aims to make the people of York more aware of the health benefits of physical activity.”

Lawrence Christensen, Marketing Director at benenden health said, “Partnering with Active York is an excellent fit for benenden health – the aim of encouraging people to be more physically active is one we are wholeheartedly behind and already do a great deal to support across York.

As a health and wellbeing organisation, helping to make people in our local area more aware of the benefits of exercise and promote the role of sport and leisure within the community is immensely important to us. I was struck by Active York’s passion and determination to motivate people to get fitter and that is why we have come on board as health partner.

“We are active supporters of the promotion of health and wellbeing initiatives as part of our work with York City in the Community and we feel that this partnership will naturally build on this and help us reach more people with messages about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. I’m looking forward to developing our partnership with Active York and supporting the work they do in the local community.”

Fund For The Gifted grants are available to any young people who live, attend a school and train in York. Grants are available in the following areas: travel to regional, national or international training camps, training events or competitions; specialist coaching; sports injury and rehabilitation; sports science support, equipment and sports clothing.

The fund aims to assist talented young athletes achieve their full potential in sport through the provision of financial support.

The Fund For The Gifted is open to all athletes under the age of 19 who are competing at district level or above and who can clearly demonstrate how a grant would help enhance their performance potential.
