CHARITIES

Giles is a supporter of the following charities

• Teenage Cancer Trust 

o Giles went through the very first TCT ward at the Middlesex Hospital in London when having chemotherapy.
o The charity raises money to put specialist wards into hospitals for teenagers to receive cancer treatment. The results are impressive – those that go through TCT wards are almost 20% more likely to survive.

 

• SportsAid 

 

 

 

 

 

 

o Giles was supported by SportsAid. The charity provides young sportsmen and sportswomen with crucial funding during their development.
o A small amount of money goes a long way with young aspiring athletes and can provide the help with travel, training and competition costs at a time before commercial sponsors take interest.
o In combination with the funding many young athletes cite the recognition from the organisation as a major boost in itself.
o Almost two thirds of the GB Olympic and Paralympic teams will have been supported by SportsAid at some point in their career.

 

• Streetgames

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

o Giles supports the work of Streetgames to get young people in inner cities swimming and into sport in general.
o The charity provides a great support network to get young people volunteering.

• Panathlon


 

 

o Giles supports the work of Panathlon in getting young people with disabilities into sport at the grassroots level.
