The Sporting Chance Prize Draw is a not-for-profit organisation that brings together the sporting community and charities across the UK.

A £10 entry into the draw could win you one of 80 sporting prizes including Olympic Games tickets with Team GB, Skiing Weekends, Henley regatta hospitality tickets or a visit to your school from a GB athlete.

Doing it for Dan was set up in memory of 11-year-old Daniel Climance who tragically lost his life in a road traffic accident in Purton Swindon in June 2015. The charity in his name set up by his parents helps young people to get active and achieve their sporting dreams by awarding grants to individuals and teams in Wiltshire and its neighbouring counties. Since 2017 the charity has provided grants totalling over £100,000 to over 200 young people and organisations in the local area for sports equipment, kit, and club memberships.

Daniel’s mum, Helen Hancock said, “we are absolutely delighted to be one of the selected charities to benefit from the Sporting Chance Prize Draw. As a tiny charity, this is a brilliant opportunity for us to raise funds and awareness for our charity. A lot of the prizes on offer are ‘money can’t buy’ experiences and by choosing to support Doing it for Dan when you enter the draw, 100% of the money you give will go directly to us – ensuring that we can continue to support young people engage in sport in our local area.”

Sporting Chance Prize Draw’s Founder, Simon Jacot added, “Our not-for-profit, Prize Draw platform was set up to help support small, life-changing charities like Doing it for Dan. Every penny raised goes to our charity partners. We are thrilled to be partnered with Doing it for Dan and look forward to what will be the biggest and most exciting Sporting Chance Prize Draw campaign so far, this March”.
