Scottish Student Sport (SSS) support the British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) & the BRIT Challenge

We are delighted that Scottish Student Sport (SSS) are continuing to champion our annual BRIT Challenge.


The support from Stew Fowie, Chief Operating Officer at SSS, has been tremendous and we are sincerely grateful to Stew, the SSS Team and the students and staff at universities and colleges throughout Scotland who are embracing and promoting our BRIT Challenge.

"Scottish Student Sport is proud to signal its support for The British Inspiration Trust (BRIT) and their inspiring annual BRIT Challenge initiative for students and young adults.

Mental Health and Wellbeing are vitally important aspects of any positive student experience and we applaud BRIT’s efforts to bring both perspiration and inspiration to this key area, through their inclusive BRIT Challenge.

Being active is one of the best ways to promote good physical, mental and social health and BRIT will help make an impact both locally and nationally – very much in keeping with SSS’ strategic aims. We look forward to promoting and supporting the annual BRIT Challenge, and hope to see widespread engagement from Student Associations, Sports Unions, Departments and senior management."
