Brian Ashton MBE

Find Your Activity Ambassador

Find Your Activity is an incredibly innovative project with wide ranging benefits. Children have many different needs and wants so finding activities to stimulate them can be difficult.

The Find Your Activity platform fixes this by listing all the different activities in your area, opening the opportunity for communities to thrive again. We all need a variety of activities to re-ignite the mind, the body and the soul.

I am delighted to be a Find Your Activity Ambassador, to help promote physical/mental health and wellbeing throughout your communities and beyond.

Ellie Simonds-Gooding

Athlete Rower

Find Your Activity Ambassador

I am currently an athlete of the GB Start Rowing programme in Leeds, a talent identification programme funded by the national lottery. Alongside this I am also tutoring in both Primary and Secondary schools for a charity called The Tutor Trust, whose aim is to tackle educational inequality.

Being lucky enough to have had an incredibly active childhood has provided me with the absolute love of sport I have today. When asked whether I would be an ambassador for Find Your Activity, it was a hands down yes!

Making it easier for people to find and access suitable activities for themselves, children or anyone else is so important, especially when it helps to keep that sense of community and togetherness through exercise and activities since the pandemic has hit.

I am honestly so excited to be part of Find Your Activity and cannot wait to see what the future holds!
