Congratulations Kitty!

image2Well done to dancer Kitty, one of the beneficiaries of the Trust’s sports bursary programme, who has just returned from the Tap World Championships in Germany with a gold medal.

Kitty danced for up to 15 hours a day during the Championships – but all the hard work paid off!

Well done Kitty and the GB team.

Two new sports bursaries

The Trust has just awarded 2 sports bursaries to local school children to help them further their progress in their chosen sports.

Oldfield School pupil Samir has been awarded a bursary towards his judo competition fees and association membership.  Samir has been hugely successful in regional and national competitions, and is now training for the British School Championships in April, and hoping for selection to the England pre-cadet team.

Jemima is in Year 7 at St Gregory’s and is currently competing for Team GB in Germany at the World Tap Championships, where she has just won gold.  Her bursary will help fund the costs of this competition.

We wish Samir and Jemima further well deserved success over the coming months – watch this space for updates on their progress.
