NEWHAM ALL STAR SPORTS ACADEMY (NASSA)
 
NASSA was founded as a charity in 2006 after Natasha Hart took her two sons to a local park in the London Borough of Newham to teach them the game of basketball. They loved it, their friends loved it and so did young people who spent their time hanging about in the park.
those sessions spawned a charity which provides local young people with the chance to play basketball in a safe, fun environment while being mentored on subjects such as the dangers of knife crime and gang culture.
NASSA now reaches 1,000 local schoolchildren each week, it has 150 members and it runs coaching qualifications programmes which are providing east London with its next generation of ambitious and enthusiastic sport coaches.
NASSA was named overall Charity of the Year in the Charity Awards 2014.
