The ethos of Firstaid4sport is focused around providing quality products, through excellent product knowledge and one-to-one personalised advice to customers to ensure this happens. This philosophy begins at home in Lincolnshire, looking after as many of the local athletes and sports participants as possible. Firstaid4sport’s passion for athletes to receive a high standard or care right through from the grassroots level upwards, to ensure that they progress their careers to the highest possible level complements the core objectives of LEAP, and this partnership will contribute to the further success of the Lincolnshire athletes involved with the programme.

LEAP Supporters' Club

The LEAP Supporters Club has been developed for businesses to make a donation of £250 and in return they will receive the LEAP logo to place on their website and email footer for a calendar year. Many businesses want to give something back into the community and the county and this is an excellent opportunity to see their donation make a difference to a young athlete.
