Weʼve raised £130 to Help Toby, my bestie Elizabeth Samber's son, raise funds towards the cost of his tennis career.
- Funded on Tuesday, 31st October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Toby Roberts is a 16 year old gifted and talented young tennis player, fourth in Cornwall in the under 16's, and he also plays for the County team. He goes to Germany once a year to train, and this year has been invited to play for CC Steinbach, which is an amazing achievement!
Toby is going to Truro College in September to study for an Extended Diploma in Sports Science, and will be a member of the Tennis Academy there.
His ambition would be to play the Nationals this year, and the Internationals by the end of next year. In order to achieve this it is going to cost him just over £10,000 in terms of coaching, lessons, entries to competitions, travel and accommodation, and his tennis kit. Toby is also coaching at his local tennis club, the proceeds of which will go towards helping raise funds, and that is commendable of him! Living in Cornwall means it costs far more to travel to competitions, and he obviously has to stay somewhere when competing!
Obviously a teenager hasn't got the funds to do this on completely his own, and I think supporting a talented young man pursue his dream is extremely worthwhile!! Supporting talent from the County of Cornwall to realise a dream like this could see a Cornish player at Wimbledon, and that would be just amazing!!!
