Youth Sport Trust donation marks 21st anniversary finale
Following a year full of events and activities in celebration of its 21st anniversary, four star venue Burleigh Court has presented the Youth Sport Trust with a cheque for over £2,500
In its 21st year, the Loughborough University based hotel and conference venue celebrated with a gala dinner, special discounts for customers and a trek across the three peaks in Yorkshire, which was so successful that it raised half of the final total. Burleigh Court also welcomed Team GB as the University campus became the team’s official preparation camp ahead of the London 2012 Olympics, adding to the excitement felt around the whole building during its anniversary year.
On presenting the cheque, Guy Hodge said: “2012 was a unique year for Burleigh Court and a really exciting time for the whole team - we wanted to celebrate by giving something back to the community. The Youth Sports Trust seemed like the perfect fit due to our link with Team GB and other major sporting events. We know that this donation is going to a great cause and will help children get a ‘sporting start’ in life. We hope to see some of them using the world-class sporting facilities at Loughborough University in the future!”
