The Spirit of 2012 Trust was set up recently to capture the spirit of the London 2012 games and to carry the enthusiasm and sense of ownership felt throughout the country into new and interesting projects.

It was a natural match to get involved in Legacy 2014, and so Alex manages a £5 million fund to get people out of the house and getting more active. He oversees a large number of initiatives, from singing to running and people from all walks of life are actively encouraged to take part and help build a local community by doing something simple and fun.

“We have set up a financial support programme to allow those [with low incomes or high expenditure] the chance to take part in an amazing event. – Alex Johnston.
