welcome to NASSA - Home of Champions
Emily Mather - My story
The National Three Peaks Challenge is to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in less than 24 hours. This is a total hike of 26 miles and a total ascent of 3000m. The timer starts from the start of Ben Nevis to the end of Snowdon including travel between the peaks.
As it will be very difficult and probably not that much fun we thought we’d take the opportunity to raise money for a good cause.
We have chosen to support one of Tate and Lyle Sugars’ community partners Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA). We have personally seen the good work that NASSA do and we are keen to support them, so please give if you can. All the money we raise will be matched by Tate and Lyle Sugars.

"I was very impressed with my recent visit to a NASSA training session - not only at the skill of these young people but also with their teamwork and dedication. Improving community links between young people and the police and building confidence and positivity for the next generation is of the utmost importance. The Metropolitan Police Service in Newham is delighted to be involved with such a valuable youth project and we are looking forward to another fantastic year of working together. I am very much looking forward to my next visit"

|‘We are extremely pleased to be working in partnership with NASSA in the creation of the most comprehensive basketball programme in the UK. As a very ambitious University we fully endorse the vision and values of NASSA, and we will collectively play a significant part in the regeneration of East London and the fulfilment of legacy post 2012. SportsDock is a flagship facility in London, and is a much greater asset to the community with NASSA an integral part of it.’
