There should be more organizations out there like Sports Traider, a sports charity shop that raises money and puts it back into its programs that allow kids in need to access clothing and equipment for gains but also encourage them to train by giving them the ability to access sports clubs and gyms. "Why?," they ask on their website. "Because not all kids have soccer mums and dads. Some families don’t have the time, the money or sometimes – sadly – the commitment to support their children through the expense and effort of taking part in sport."
The founder is Lance Haggith who won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2010 and also founded other charities such as Hoops Aid.
