Press Release:- The Oliver Gobat Sports (TOGS) Fund was set up by the Gobat family, in
memory of their third son, known by many as “Ollie” who was tragically murdered almost 7 years ago on 25th April 2014.
To date, no one has been apprehended for this crime but his legacy and passion for St.
Lucia and various sports lives on through the Fund, which will assist young St. Lucian citizens, to pursue and achieve their sporting goals.
Over the past 6 years TOGs has distributed over 0.5 million EC to the youth of St Lucia who are engaged in sports.
On Saturday 20th March we will be having a brief ceremony to commemorate the 6th Anniversary of the TOGs fund.
Ollie was passionate about fitness and sport, and would want the fund to help young people of all ages and abilities, where government and sporting associations are unable to assist on their own.
Ollie was born in St. Lucia and loved the country of his birth.
He spent the past 10 years of his life promoting the island and made a significant contribution to the successful completion of The Landings.
As a family, we too share this passion, we believe that participation in sports offers many benefits, and can help develop:
• Constructive use of energy in growing youths
• A sense of self-esteem, achievement and self-discipline
• Responsibility and avenue for career development
• An understanding of health and fitness, and a fit body
