Columbia Threadneedle Foundation is proud to be Principal Corporate Partner of Access Sport. 

At Columbia Threadneedle, we view philanthropy as investment in the future, with returns measured not in pounds but rather lives impacted and transformed. Columbia Threadneedle Foundation invests in the community by partnering with charities that share our goals and values. An approach that not only delivers improvement to individual lives, but brings long-term benefit to the community by helping address critical social issues and drive lasting social change.

We have partnered with Access Sport since 2013. Over the years our support has allowed Access Sport to enable thousands of disadvantaged young people to develop the core physical literacy skills of running, cycling and swimming. Our funding will specifically enable inactive teenagers to become active and enjoy one or more of these sports, benefitting from lifestyle and health improvements.

SEGA Europe came on board as Access Sport's Official Video Games Partner

At the end of 2015, SEGA embarked on a formal partnership with Access Sport, having supported our 'A Question of Access Sport Dinner for a number of years.

SEGA have since raised significant funds through various initiatives, including the popular Humble Bundle, enabling us to continue giving many more children and young people, living in inner city areas, the chance to enjoy and benefit from access to quality local community sport. 

Furthermore, this summer, the Access Sport team were thrilled to be shortlisted and then voted as a GamesAid charity, receiving an incredible £23,680.
