Centtrip helps Golfing4Life invest in young talent

When we were presented with an opportunity to host a special event for young people, we grabbed it with both hands.

Centtrip helps Golfing4Life invest in young talent

At Centtrip, we believe investing in talented young people and helping them achieve their full potential is as important as building our smart financial technology.

That is why we are hosting Golfing4Life’s unique event aimed at equipping young players with indispensable life and professional skills to set them up for success on and off the golf course.

“Fame, fear, tears and hard work – any athlete, whether professional or amateur, should be prepared to experience these throughout their career,” said Tony North, CEO of Centtrip Music.

Sponsored by the European Tour Foundation and Under the Posts, 10 elite amateur players, including junior Ryder Cup player Conor Gough, will learn how the business side of professional sport works.

CEO of Switch the Play Leon Lloyd and former West Ham and Charlton manager Alan Curbishley will share their insights into the importance of dedication, sponsorship and branding in sport.

The young athletes will also meet Tony Sims, the legendary Matchroom boxing coach, and will visit the UCLH Teenage Cancer Trust unit in London to meet other young people who will provide more perspective on how to face and overcome some of the biggest challenges that life can throw at you.

With Centtrip’s support Sean Towndrow won his first professional event on the Jamega ProGolf Tour in June.

“Some of our players have lost a parent or experienced a family breakdown, others have been under financial strain or have an illness,” said James Byers, co-founder of Golfing4Life. “I am very grateful to Leon and Alan for joining us for a day to share invaluable insights into professional sport. And I look forward to our hospital visit and introducing our players to our philanthropic core and the magnificent work of the Teenage Cancer Trust.”

Centtrip has been sponsoring Golfing4Life since its inception in 2013.
