The Youth Sport Trust is delighted to confirm DC UK as a key partner in the UK for YST National School Sport Week 2019 in celebration of Batman’s 80th anniversary.

James Kyte, YST Commercial Director said:

We are delighted to welcome DC UK on board for our flagship summer campaign. This year’s National School Sport Week aims to highlight how vital wellbeing is to the health of our young people and how PE and school sport have a huge role to play in bringing wellbeing strategies to life. By working with such a well-known character as Batman, we hope to further engage young people with the YST message.

“We are thrilled that downloadable activity sheets as well as a Batman branded certificate will be available alongside our existing National School Sport Week resources, enabling schools to engage with this globally recognised character.”

DC UK joins an inspirational list of supporters for the week following confirmation that Decathlon, Everything Branded, and David Lloyd are also embracing the chance to help encourage and support healthier and more active lifestyles for future generations.
