Start StreamingWhat Jingle Jam donations will fund This year, Jingle Jam funding will support Access Sport’s ground-breaking BMX programme, transforming the mental health of 2000 young people.Mental health issues among young people are rising sharply, along with obesity and inactivity, and the situation is even more acute following the pandemic. We believe that getting young people cycling is hugely important because it makes a proven difference to mental wellbeing and confidence levels, physical health and let’s not forget local communities and the planet by cutting fossil fuel pollution. How we will achieve this As soon as we receive Jingle Jam funding, we plan to get stuck in and start work straight away on: Running hundreds more weekly coaching sessions for schools across London, Bristol and Manchester Training multiple new volunteer BMX coaches across our growing national network of over 50 BMX clubs Funding additional bikes, helmets, gloves and other equipment where it is most needed. We believe that BMX appeals to young people because it is expressive, empowering, fun and social – attributes that it shares with video games!
