Youth Sport Trust pays tribute to Lisa Burgoyne

It is with great sadness that we at Youth Sport Trust share the news of the death of one of our family, Lisa Burgoyne.
Lisa Burgoyne

Lisa passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. She had her wife Ali and family around her.

Lisa worked at the Youth Sport Trust for over seven years. She was passionate about the power of PE and sport to change young people’s lives and worked tirelessly to support teachers with the highest quality training. Her dedication was such that she continued working through her illness, right up until her final days.

Lisa’s loved ones are in all of our thoughts, and we know that many of our partners and networks who were lucky enough to get to know her over the years will want to join us in paying tribute.

In the coming days we will be sharing details of how we will be honouring Lisa’s memory.
