    Story

    Billy has been skiing since he was a little boy, spending the winter months in France. He was lucky to be picked to ski in the Ski Etude Programme which has restricted entry each year for the top 30 young skiers in France. By 2012 he had competed in his first full season of FIS (Federation International de Ski) races and in 2013 was selected as part of TeamGB for the Winter Youth Olympics in Romania. He became the overall British Under 18 Champion in 2013. 2014 Billy again represented TeamGB in the World Junior Championships in Slovakia and he retained his title as overall U18 Champion by winning the junior Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom and Slalom events. In 2014/15 he was selected as part of the British U21 squad and despite some injury set backs he won the British U21 Downhill and Super G titles.

    Since then things have moved up a level for Billy and he is now skiing for the British Europa Cup Squad which are a specially selected elite team. He has had great success in this team and was awarded the Victor Ludorum trophy at the British Championships in Tignes for best results by any male or female skier and also became the British Men's Alpine Champion 2017.

    He now has a more dedicated team around him but of course this comes at a cost. Although the team receive some funding from British Ski and Snowboarding Organisation (BSS), the shortfall that Billy has to personally contribute is £33,500 per year.

    Billy is a hard working individual; he is known for being one of the first on the training slopes and last off. He is described as quietly spoken and modest but also highly competitive. Determination, commitment and luck will all play a part, and Billy does have the potential to reach the highest level. He cannot succeed without knowledgeable trainers to improve his technique and physical development, good training facilities and the right equipment.

    If Billy does succeed, he will be a worthy representative for British sport.

      Well we’ve done it! And it’s all thanks to your kind and generous donations. We’ve actually surpassed the target by 42%!!! Billy needs to raise over £33,000 per year to continue with his training, so this amount goes a long way to helping with that. So a HUGE thank you to you all. Now to the Bike Ride. We wish all the riders the best of luck on their enormous task ahead! So good luck Tanya, Katherine, Sarah, Steve, Liv, Andrew, Susanne, Warren, Jo, Ann, Mary, Tony, Mike, Ian, Debbie, Peter, Brenda and the 4 support vehicles.
