Yellowball Foundation – Our Story
Our Founder, Dean Horridge, was himself a recipient of financial and moral support and this early philanthropic intervention has driven his determination to provide the same transformational opportunities for young people today, via Yellowball Foundation.
Yellowball Foundation was set up in 2007 and funds free access to healthy, active programmes, to those unable to afford this opportunity. We inspire achievable, sustainable activity and highlight the benefit of a healthy lifestyle, helping young people to develop essential social and physical skills, build confidence and reach their potential.
As well as getting children off to a healthy start, or being able to play safely at the end of school, our charity provides a massive help for predominantly single parents and carers, many of whom are battling to juggle parenting with work or job-seeking. Additional sponsorship will also enable Yellowball Foundation to support teens and young adults with fitness training courses and qualifications that will help keep future generations active.
We believe our model of raising money, finding partners and providing access to healthy clubs to disadvantaged young people, can deliver huge benefits in both the short and long term. We hope you agree and will pledge your support.
