The Travers Foundation is a volunteer run Charity that provides financial support to local 13 to 30 year-olds and help them to realise their dreams in sport, music and arts - nurturing the talent of local teams, groups and individuals in Rutland, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire

Terry Forsey, chairman of The Travers Foundation, said: “As the lockdown ends, more opportunities begin to open up for young people across sport, creative and performing arts.

"Our work is essential to help local young people get back on track.

“In 2019, the young people we support won over 300 medals in local, national and international competitions. The pandemic meant that last year was a fraction of that. We are looking forward to more success in the future.

"The application process is quick and easy to complete."
