About Mary Peters Trust
The Mary Peters trust is Northern Ireland’s leading sporting charity. It helps young people, both disabled and able bodied, achieve sporting dreams and ambitions. Over the last several years the trust has funded several young cyclists by providing grants that enable the athlete to buy kit, travel to competitions, pay for entrance to events, help with trip costs for warm weather training or provide other funds required to reach the next level.
