    Story

    It's always exciting when someone in your community achieves something extraordinary. Doubly so when it's a child. Ameka is only 9 years old, but having taken up running in October 2022, she has already won silver in both the county and national modern pentathlon competitions. She then went on and took 8th place at the British Championships in April. She has earned her place in the Under-11 category at both the European and World Championships in Germany and Bath respectively. What a remarkable achievement!

    Sport is inspirational, healthy, and community building, but it is also very expensive, especially at the international level. With entry fees, Team GB kit, flights, equipment transport, accommodation, laser gun and running spikes, it all adds up quickly. Ameka and her mum Kirsteen are two of the most selfless people I've ever met, volunteering countless hours to charity work.

    Knowing the scale of the financial challenge posed to this wonderful family in order to pursue representation of the UK, I wanted to help in whatever way I could so that Ameka can focus on her impressive training and follow this well earned success as far as it can go!

    Lets help Ameka get to the European championships and beyond!

      You did it friends!! Ameka's trip to Germany is in the bag! What an amazing response from everyone! We had a small party this weekend to celebrate Ameka's achievements. We never imagined that the fundraiser would raise so much so quickly, we still have plans to raffle off cakes and have a yoga night. The brilliant thing is that this gives us a chance to do a reach goal to cover things like new trainers, training trips and the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. Thank you everyone!!
