The Duke of Sussex will attend the launch of Made by Sport, a new campaign bringing together a coalition of charities supporting disadvantaged young people through sport, at Black Prince Trust in London on 12th June 2019.

Made by Sport is borne out of the recognition that sport can play a fundamental role in developing skills that make a difference at school, at work and in life. The campaign will champion the power of sport to change the lives of young people and raise vital funds to support sports provision and grassroots clubs and organisations in disadvantaged communities across the UK.

World Champion boxing duo Anthony Joshua and Nicola Adams will be joined by other British sporting stars in lending their support to the campaign which aims to ensure a network of existing sports charities can increase the reach and impact they can have on the young people across the UK.

Upon arrival, The Duke will meet young people taking part in boxing training sessions and pad work led by Anthony and Nicola. His Royal Highness will also hear from grassroots coaches on how this campaign will make a difference to young people’s lives. Before departing The Duke will deliver short remarks.

The Duke regularly supports projects that enable children and young people to build their skills and confidence. His Royal Highness has seen how sport can positively impact people’s mental fitness and the role this has played in helping change young people’s lives. The Duke is keen to use his position to support the great work that is already taking place across the country – to ensure that community sports groups continue to play a key role in improving the life chances of disadvantaged young people.
