Right To Play Ambassadors are key figures in our organisation, most are professionals from the world of sport, but as the charity grows people from media, arts and politics are also getting involved. These are people who understand the power of sport, and its ability to build essential life skills such as self-esteem, discipline, fair play, respect and teamwork.
Right To Play Athlete Ambassadors speak to the media on behalf of us and attend events and fundraisers. Many Ambassadors have visited Right To Play programmes in the field to generate awareness and fundraising opportunities, and to see the effectiveness of our work first-hand.

Right To Play Ambassador Mark Cavendish had an amazing year in 2011, winning a Green Jersey in the Tour de France and the World Championships. Therefore, when he won Sports Personality of the Year for 2011 it was thoroughly deserved. Mark has backed Right To Play for a number of years now, helping us raise funds and awareness.
