Ensuring a healthy mind through a healthy body is key for our team at NEXA Properties and with sport and physical activity being a huge part of our culture, we are thrilled to be partnering with Youth Sport Trust, the UK’s leading charity for improving the education and development of every child through play and sport.
Working with around 20,000 schools across the UK, partnering with the community, and supporting in the home, Youth Sport Trust transforms young lives, creating opportunities for everyone to belong and achieve. Sport provides a platform for children to grow, promotes inclusion and tolerance, and allows them to form lasting relationships. Furthermore, this fantastic charity helps children to become school-ready, ensuring they exercise their minds in the classroom as well as the sports field.
With our three-year commitment, we will be supporting their 2018-2022 strategy ‘Believing in every child’s future’ which seeks to utilise sport and play to tackle the challenges of the future generation. Commercial Director of Youth Sport Trust, James Kyte explains “We are delighted and so grateful that NEXA have chosen to support Youth Trust Sport for the next three years. Their approach of funding projects local to them as well as raising unrestricted funds through their sporting endeavours will help us to reach a large cross section of young people. This support could not come at a more critical time as we work to help schools and young people recover from the ill effects of the challenging past 12 months.”
To kickstart our partnership, we have launched a spring fundraiser where our team has set out to run (or walk!) 9,000km in 90 days to reach our target of raising £9,000. These vital funds will help Youth Sport Trust to carry out further work in supporting and creating a future generation of healthy and happier young people.
Our Group Managing Director, Jamie Gray outlines: “Communities are the lifeblood of society and at NEXA we have been proud to support some incredible charities, and we look forward to focusing that attention and support on Youth Sport Trust who do a fantastic job in delivering well-being packages for children and young adults through the school system. Sport, physical activity, and the general attitude of ‘healthy body = healthy mind’ is a cornerstone of our culture and values at NEXA and we can’t wait to get this partnership underway with Youth Sport Trust.”
This partnership is a huge step in our mission in supporting the communities local to our offices and we cannot wait to go above and beyond to raise money for an incredibly worthy cause.
