Four-time Paralympic medalist Jessica Jane Applegate MBE may be forced to retire at the young age of 20, due to a cut in funding.
Despite winning 3 medals at Rio 2016 just 9 weeks after career-saving surgery and competing with a prolapsed disc in her back, Jessica's funding will drop from £21,000 to £11,000 as she was unable to reach a personal best this year. As well as this, Jessica has unfortunately lost the use of a £5000 grant.
This means Jessica is no longer able to cover the costs of necessities such as, travel, accommodation, race entry fees and racing suits.
Please help us in raising £15,000 to support such a determined Norfolk athlete to continue her career as an International Para Swimmer and achieve her dream of representing Great Britain at Tokyo 2020.
Thank you for your generosity.
