The first Talking Covid-19 and Sport webinar will be held on Wednesday 15 April and will explore Finance and Funding for Grassroots Sport, with representatives of London Sport and the Mayor’s Office being joined by renowned financial journalist and qualified football coach and referee, Georgie Frost (pictured below).

Georgie started her career as a sports journalist at the Guardian Media Group. She is passionate about encouraging more girls into sport and holds an FA referee qualification and Level One FA coaching.

Georgie will speak alongside Kerri Atherton, Project Manager in the Mayor of London’s Sport Team, and Chris Scott, London Sport’s Head of Corporate Communications.
