Samworth Sporting Stars

As well as supporting young people within the community and into employment, Samworth Brothers also financially supports a number of young British sporting stars.

Currently, our Sporting Stars are the Olympic and Commonwealth Triathlon winning brothers, Jonny and Alistair Brownlee, and David Florence, double Olympic Silver medallist and triple World Champion in C1 and C2 canoe slalom. 

Their dedication and drive for success is an inspiration to everyone at Samworth Brothers, and when training permits our Sporting Stars come to talk to our staff about their experiences within the competitive world of their chosen sport and their determination to succeed. They have also lent their support to some of our campaigns, with Jonny and Alistair recently taking time out of their training schedule to visit a primary school in Leeds for Soreen’s Active Families campaign.

Jonny and Alistair also have been involved in our Charity Challenge events since 2013, and in 2015 their team took part in, and won, the Elite category for super fit teams. They also offered support and motivation to other teams who were taking part in the Charity Challenge.    

Our Sporting Stars are busy training for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, with David confirmed as part of Team GB, while Jonny and Alistair will be hearing about their places in June. We wish them all the very best in gaining new Olympic titles this summer.
