Sponsorship: The opportunity

Being selected for the Archery GB Regional Performance Academy Programme is a wonderful opportunity for me. Being only one of twelve junior archers in the Northern Region of the UK, This was a very proud moment in my life. Therefore I really want to make the most of the opportunity I have been given.

Whilst this is a very special opportunity, it does not come without personal cost to me and my family. Archery GB are able to cover the costs of coaching, venue hire etc, but myself & my family have to cover other costs as outlined below:

Once monthly Academy ’Camps’ at Bishop Burton College in East Yorkshire, Food and hotel expenses for the weekend, as well as travel cost to and from the venue.

Attend Yorkshire Archery Academy monthly technical programme meetings (winter months only) in York, venue hire costs and travel expenses.

Attend twice monthly sessions with technical coaches at various venues in the North of England, venue hire costs and travel expenses.

Attend specified competitions in the UK, travel, accommodation and competition expenses.

 If selected to compete internationally, some travel and accommodation expenses may be incurred.



Over the course of this academy programme, this will be quite a financial burden on my family, especially as both myself and my Sister Jessie have been selected for the Academy Whilst I am prepared to put in the time and effort to complete the programme to the best of my ability, with the ultimate aim of representing my country in the Olympic Games.

I would love to hear from you if you might be able to help me in achieving that goal. It might be a monetary/sponsorship offer, but I would also be pleased to receive sponsorship in other forms, like services, equipment, travel or anything that will help me through the programme. Please use the contact page to contact me and my family, should you wish to discuss this further.
