Rocket launched the Elton John Sports Fund with more than £300,000 raised at an acclaimed concert by the artist at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire on Saturday 28th June 2014.

The fund supports Britain’s brightest prospects from more than 50 sports by providing annual awards of £2,000 to help with essential training and competition costs, led by the national charity, SportsAid.
