Two members of the Mitsuru Karate Clubs based in Cumbria have been selected as part of a 12 person England team to compete in the European Championships in in Bulgaria next February 2017.
Brandon Carr and Jed Thompson both train at the Pentrith club and have to raise money for travel as it is self funded.
The money will be used to pay for flights and accomodation for them during the four day event in Bulgaria and other competitions they will be attending next year.
Both boys are current English and British champions and are among a number of young rising stars on the England Team. Later in the year they will be looking towards selection to fight at the World Championships.
Any donations will be greatly appreciated and this will assist them in realising a life long dream to represent their country.
