Our nominated charity
As part of our mission to enrich lives, we want to have a positive impact in our community, helping young individuals learn how to improve their life skills and achieve their ambitions in life. We believe sport is a great way to do this.
It is for this reason we are supporting the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation.
DMSF was set up by Commonwealth Games gold medallist Diane Modahl, who represented Great Britain in four Olympic Games from 1988 – 2000. Her early experiences as a young person from a deprived community, inspired her to establish a youth foundation to help those most in need.
Strong evidence supports that sport encourages aspiration, improves health and fitness, and brings communities together. Yet despite this, far too few young people – particularly in deprived areas – have access to good sporting facilities, coaches and role models. More importantly many young people don’t have the confidence to put themselves forward in the first place. At DMSF they utilise the power and disciplines of physical activity to give young people opportunities to enjoy sport, to challenge them and develop resilience, focus and commitment.

As part of King Street Wealth Management’s support of DMSF we are supporting Aimee Pratt who we believe has the potential to become a future star. DMSF has helped support Aimee since the age of 14 and now 7 years later Aimee is aiming to qualify for the 3000m Steeplechase at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
