Here at Inner Flame we are absolutely delighted to announce our new patron – Eddie “the Eagle” Edwards!

Following an incredibly inspiring speech at our Young Champions 2018 event on April 20th, we had further conversations with Eddie, who was keen to become involved in Inner Flame’s activities.

“I am honoured to be a patron of such a great charity” said Eddie. “Inner Flame help people to achieve things that they never thought they could, which of course has great affinity with my own personal journey to the Winter Olympics.”

This comes in Inner Flame’s tenth year of operation, as the charity reflect upon the last decade of service to young people, as well as focusing on the future.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have Eddie become a patron for Inner Flame” said CEO, Gail McKay. “Numerous parts of his journey to the 1988 Calgary Olympics have similarities to the struggles that some of our young people face, and he embodies the sentiment that you don’t necessarily have to win a gold medal to succeed.”

Alongside Eddie, Inner Flame now looks forward to the 2019 Young Champions event, which will take place on April 26th. To book your table now or for any sponsorship enquiries, please contact
