Weʼre raising £2,000 to continue my training for international selections in the upcoming years whilst remaining a part of the British Canoeing talent pathway.
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.
Msy goals for the upcoming season include getting a top 5 national ranking in U16 as well as getting some national titles and being selected for both the piestany and olympic hopes international regattas. These are being held in the Czech Republic and Poland during the summer.
With training over 12 times a week, monthly national competitions, international training camps and potential compeitions ; as well as the specialist equipment needed to compete at a high level, my annual costs to partipate within my sport come to over £7000. The sport as a whole recieve barely any funding within the talent pathway meaning we have to contribute to everything including camps and training days for the use of facilities.
