The Duke of Cambridge visited Sports Key on May 6th, 2022, to see some of the work in action, meeting with co-directors Jeavon Nicely, Daniel Allen and Jermaine Pitterson to understand the role they play in the community and how partnering with the Games is helping to amplify their work. He also, joined in our session for a game of Badminton which he and our members thoroughly enjoyed!
The Duke was also keen to understand how our volunteer programme offers an opportunity for young people to develop their employability and life skills by working to deliver some of the organisation’s activities, particularly after meeting our volunteers.
Sports Key are a United By Birmingham 2022 partner and are also one of the organisations that are delivering the Birmingham Commonwealth Games’ Gen22 project.
Sports Key would also like to acknowledge The National Lottery Community Fund’s (TNL) critical role helping the organisation in supporting communities to unleash their energy and potential. The National Lottery Community Fund is a major contributor for Sports Key’s holistic community programmes. This entails infrastructure capacity and our community activities, community of practice, parks programme, youth activities and our childcare provision.
