London Olympics legacy for amateur sports charities

More amateur sports charities have been set up and the sector’s income has increased in the years following the London 2012 Olympics, an analysis by the Charities Aid Foundation has found.

In the two years that followed the games being held in the capital, there was an 11 per cent increase in the number of large amateur sports charities in England and Wales. The same period also saw funding for amateur sports charities surge to £235m per year, up 9 per cent from the year previous to the 2012 Olympics.
