Gift of the Games
Glasgow 2014 will share the first-hand thrill of world-class sport with 5000 of the most disadvantaged young people through a ground-breaking programme called Gift of the Games.
With just one month to go, Gift of the Games will ensure thousands of young people who otherwise may not have the opportunity, will now be part of an inspiring day out at Scotland’s biggest-ever sporting and cultural festival.
Young people from every local authority area in Scotland will experience the field-of-play action across a wide range of sports taking place throughout the Games, with transport and meals also provided. Games sponsors and Scotland’s business community are meeting the cost of Gift of the Games. The programme will be delivered through the grassroots network of Bauer Media’s charity, Cash For Kids. Bauer Media joins Glasgow 2014’s sponsor family as an Official Provider of Gift of the Games.
