    Weʼve raised £1,020 to Compete for team GB at the 2017 World Championships

    Horsham, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 17th November 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am a member of the 2017 GB Freestyle Kayaking Team. This is my second time competing at a World championships for Team GB, and my First time in the senior category. I made the team after 2 trials events one Cardiff and Nottingham, where I placed 3rd, securing my place on team.

    The problem that I have is that our sport only gets a small amount of funding, and anything that we do get we try and put back into the sport to help it grow and increase the skill level of the athletes. This leaves people like me in the tricky position of trying to fund themselves in the sport and this year the extra challenge of the world championships taking place in San Juan, Argentina. Meaning the Costs are really high for this event.

    I work as much as I can when I am not training to help, and am also looking at running some fundraising events to raise the money needed to get me to the world Championships. What this page is, is me asking for your support so I can make this dream happen and allow me to train at my hardest and have the best chance of doing well at this event. Anything you can do will help, wether it be the money you would normally spend of a Coffee on your lunch break at work or more generous contribution it all helps.

    In total I am needing to raise £3000 just to get myself to the event, this is not including any training costs before I go, or any equipment that is in need of renewal before the event. This is just the cost of getting me and my equipment to the event and living costs when I am out there. Please contact me at for sponsorship opportunities.

    lastly I would like to say THANK YOU for just reading though this and THANK YOU even more if you have contributed to getting me to the world championships. Please leave a message if you do donate so I can personally thank you, but if you want to remain anonymous then that is okay too.
