The Olympic Year Appeal was launched on 27th May for The Eric Liddell 100 initiative to secure our charity namesake’s legacy.

As we approach the centenary of Eric Liddell’s historic triumph at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris, there has never been a more opportune moment to ensure that his legacy continues to inspire future generations. We have launched our Olympic Year Appeal to secure his legacy during this special year, for future years to come. The Eric Liddell 100 programme, dedicated to celebrating Liddell’s life, sporting achievements, and community service, is at the forefront of this effort. But we need your help to ensure that Liddell’s legacy lives on.

The Eric Liddell 100 programme encompasses a range of initiatives aimed at inspiring young people to embody the values of integrity, compassion, and passion that defined Liddell’s life. From educational outreach to sporting events, these initiatives are designed to engage and empower the next generation to fulfil their potential.

One of the key pillars of the Eric Liddell 100 programme is its educational outreach efforts. Through the distribution of free educational resources to schools across Scotland, we aim to keep Liddell’s legacy alive in the hearts and minds of young people. But to expand our reach and develop even more comprehensive resources, we need your support.

Your donation could help us develop further educational materials, including interactive online resources and Sports Toolkit, to inspire the next generation of learners. By investing in education, you could help to ensure that Liddell’s story continues to resonate with young people for years to come.

In addition to educational outreach, the Eric Liddell 100 programme also includes a range of sporting events and initiatives designed to promote Liddell’s legacy of athleticism and sportsmanship. Your donation could help fund these events, providing young athletes with the opportunity to participate in tournaments and competitions that celebrate Liddell’s spirit of passion and dedication.

Finally, your support could help us create a dedicated exhibition space to honour Liddell’s life and legacy. By establishing a permanent home for the Eric Liddell exhibition in our community, we can ensure that his story continues to inspire visitors of all ages for generations to come.

Together, we can ensure that Eric Liddell’s legacy remains a source of inspiration for future generations. Your donation, no matter the size, can make a real difference in our efforts to honour Liddell’s memory and inspire young people to make a positive impact on the world around them. Join us in securing Liddell’s legacy for the next hundred years and beyond.
