Main aim of the charity
TS1 Tees Valley Sports - Was established in 2015 by leading members of the community in Teesside, United Kingdom. The team having a Sports background wanted to provide adults and children with a strong Vision & Belief that they too could participate and achieve at the highest levels of Competitive Sport
How the employee got involved and why
I'm one of the founding members of the group. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and started to look for ways to get fit. In my search I found out that there was a huge demand for fitness activities in the community and so decided to start organising activities for the young and old. We have worked with MFC Foundation, Middlesbrough council, FA, Teesside Uni, Tees Valley community foundation and many others.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I am the club secretary and am involved in running the admin for TS1 Tees Valley, but I also join the fitness sessions and event days. The admin centres around organizing events, accounting, meetings, and running payroll (as we did recently have a funded employee to aid our development)
What impact would winning have on the charity?
It would be a great boost to our volunteers and members to be recognized by DHL, plus any funding would allow us to hold further events and lift our profile in the region enabling us to grow our charity group.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
It would give me the satisfaction of being able to give back more to the community.
