About the Trust

The Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Trust is a non-profit charitable trust established in August 1990.

The purpose of the Trust is to provide assistance to young Cantabrians under the age of 25, where hardship prevents them from fulfilling their cultural or sporting endeavours. Information regarding sponsorship or funding is available here.

Since its beginning the trust has made hundreds of grants to Cantabrians under 25 across a wide range of cultural and sporting disciplines.

Like many charitable organisations, the Trust is reliant on ongoing financial assistance in order to make grants available to young Canterburians in need. Meet the trustees of the Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Trust.

The Canterbury Sportsperson of the Year Awards

The Canterbury Sportsperson of the Year Awards Dinner was the annual fundraising event of the Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Trust. The annual dinner ran from 1991-2011 to recognise Canterbury's sporting success with significant support from many Canterbury corporate bodies, sports associations and finalists each year.

The previous winners of The Canterbury Sportsperson of the Year Awards and The Marriotts Hadlee Sports Awards can be viewed from 1991 up to 2016.
