    Weʼve raised £1,325 to reach my Goal I need to fundraise to help with my training and Travel to Competitions with the GB Fencing Team and Commonwealth Season

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 3rd January 2018

    As a young child I was angry and confused.  I grew up in a chaotic and often violent home in a disadvantaged area of Edinburgh. I found school hard being Dyslexic but I found my arena to shine ……

    My release was sport and at the age of 11 I found fencing.  Not your average sport for a child of my background, but I was able to focus my frustrations through sport to reach a “Positive Destination”. It didn’t matter what was going on at home, where I lived or how well I was doing at school, when I was fencing I was no different from anyone else.  No matter what else was going on I discovered that if I worked hard and surrounded myself with positive people, I could achieve anything. I found out its ok to make mistakes, that’s how we learn. I became more confident and I realised sport could teach me so much and the skills that I learnt could be transferred into changing my life for the better…..

    My Goal is winning that elusive Gold Medal at the next commonwealths. It wont be easy and I'm training hard and traveling the world competing for GB. With your help I can focus on the task at hand and sharing my journey with everyone.

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
