The Travers Foundation originated in 2012 by local businessman Terry Forsey with the sole purpose of helping local young people with funding to realise their dreams in sport, music and art.

Through charitable donations and events, the foundation has nurtured budding triathletes, boxers, comedians, directors, actors, singers, dancers, swimmers, footballers and table tennis stars, to name a few. In 2019, the foundation helped 68 young people by providing £31,350 in funding.

The funding comprises of direct coaching for individuals and teams, studio time for artists, competition support - including travel and entry expenses through to financing productions and events. Having made the decision not to take on any newcomers during the summer of 2020, the charity is now accepting new applications.
