About The Ashley Scrivens Foundation

The Ashley Scrivens Foundation is a grant making trust set up to support and promote the development of youth sport within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, with a forward giving philosophy to extend the impact of the grants that we make.

Established in 2014 in the memory of Ashley Scrivens, we strive to carry forward Ashley’s legacy of developing youth sport, and his immense generosity in terms of giving back to those that helped him or are less fortunate than himself.

TASF differs slightly from the usual trust, by the way that we ask the recipients of our grants to give something forward to their community in return. This can be anything that the recipient chooses, but has to fulfil our criteria of helping their community, and is proportional to the size of grant given. We believe that not only does this make the money we give work harder and draw communities together, but also carries forward Ashley’s legacy of forward giving

We run several fundraising events over the course of the year, as well as people fundraising for us, and then meet as a board of trustees every quarter to vote upon which projects we can support. We invite organisations, such as clubs, societies, schools, youth clubs etc to apply to us for a grant to either wholly or partly fund a project that fits with our criteria.

As a part of the application, we’ll ask the applicant to outline how they are planning to give forward, outside of their normal activities. If the applicant is unsure, we are happy to give ideas and/or align them with local charities or social enterprises that could use their help. Preference will be given, however, to organisations who have given thought as to how they’d like to give forward.

Our ultimate aim is to make sport accessible to all under-18’s within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, agnostic to ability, type of sport or demographic. We do this by making grants for specific projects and initiatives that are aimed at increasing the participation level in, and/or improve the quality of sport within our geographical reach.

Charlotte and the Condor, conquer the mountain

Up, up, and up still more, my Condor and I will be traversing the Alpine and Pyrenees roads between Nice and Barcelona with the BBBikers this September.
But Why?1) For my healthI have this year transitioned from being a hospital doctor, to working in General Practice. I now for the first time work a sedentary, office-based job, where I sit at a desk for 10 hours a day Hours are long, days are busy, and I got lazy. In 6months I have put on 6kg, an issue I need to address urgently.I was therefore looking for a goal, something to get me back in the saddle as it were, when my friend Lucy volunteered me for this ride.
2) For my chosen charitiesTASF- a Wiltshire based charity creating opportunities for youth participation in sport (75% proceeds). See bottom of pageDMI- international charity delivering heath promotion and education materials though radio and television broadcasting to poorly resourced communities in the developing world (25% proceeds). The costs of this tour are fully covered by corporate sponsorship, therefore all money raised goes directly to these charities
3) For FunFor the BBBikers, this will be their third tour, having already completed leg 1: Cirencester to Paris, and leg 2: Paris to Nice. I am looking forward to being a new member of the BBB team for this next stage.The challenge of this ride, will be outmatched only by the beauty of the countryside and mountain views, a true experience of a lifetime. In training I'm enjoying seeing much of unexplored Wiltshire countryside, and re-learning the delights of padded Lycra and Chamois cream.

Shaun is Fundraising

I am soon to embark on a gruelling long distance, multi-day, cycle event ride to raise funds for two charities; The Ashley Scrivens Foundation and Transaid (Xpediator Plc's Charity Partner).I will be joining a large group of riders who will be cycling from Nice to Barcelona, through the Alps and Pyrenees and clocking up around 100 miles a day for a 6 day period.About The Ashley Scrivens FoundationThe Ashley Scrivens Foundation (TASF) is a grant making trust set up to support and promote the development of youth sport within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, with a forward giving philosophy to extend the impact of the grants that we make.The foundation is named in the memory of Ashley, who passed away in 2014 at the tender age of 24 from a rare and aggressive form of skin cancer. Ashley was a talented rugby player, and played for Cirencester RFC, where he also devoted a lot of spare time in coaching the youth elements of the club.TASF hopes to carry forward Ashley’s sense of community, his sense of humour, and his passion for developing young sports people, both on and off the field. a corporate partner, Xpediator Plc are proud supporters of Transaid, an international charity that seeks to reduce poverty in some of the world's poorest countries by investing in transport. Transport is essential for life but the reality for many of the poorest people across Africa and the developing world is that access to transport is poor, inadequate or non-existant.Transaid, an international development charity, recognises that transport knowledge is absolutely essential to the smooth running of any project involving movement of goods or people. Transaid seeks to identify, champion, implement and share local transport solutions to improve access to basic services and economic opportunity for people in Africa and in developing countries.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
