About the Sportsman's Charity

Chris Paterson kicks

The purpose of The Sportsman’s Charity is, in partnership with individuals, charities and the corporate sector, to generate funds for distribution for charitable purposes.

In 1983, founders David MacLean, John Frame and Andrew Cubie wished to provide the same opportunities for others which they had enjoyed as sportsmen during in their careers.

From the £1,800 raised in that first year, The Sportsman’s Charity has since distributed over £2.8m.

As well as supporting some of the larger established charities, The Sportsman’s Charity takes a special interest in smaller organisations for which a modest donation can make all the difference.

There are many ways you can support The Sportsman’s Charity including partnering with us or making donations.
