About the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust

Dame Kelly Holmes is best known for her international athletics career. She has won Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European medals, and added the ultimate sporting trophy to her collection at the Athens Olympic Games in 2004: Double Olympic Gold.

After retiring from world class sport in 2005, Dame Kelly wanted to create a legacy from her career. She wanted to benefit the young people who look up to, and are inspired by elite sports performers like herself. Having seen firsthand the difference that world class sports performers can make to kid's lives, Dame Kelly set up her own charity The DKH Legacy Trust. It's mission is to 'create life chances for young people'.

Uniquely, every young person that the Trust supports has the chance to work with, be inspired by, and learn from the experience of world class sports stars. The charity's team of Olympians, Paralympians, World, Commonwealth and European Champions know what it takes to overcome adversity, and still have the will to succeed, not only in sport, but in life too.
