New stretch target
In the run up to the World Championships in Portugal, Ollie shall compete in competitions around the country to gain valuable fight experience. These tournaments that include trips to Newcastle and Doncaster incur travel expenses and fight registration fees.
Competing in these tournaments also requires specific equipment that has to meet WKC regulations. Gloves need to be of a certain type and weight, headguards and other protective must be worn, at an eye watering cost.
Any monies raised over the initial Portugal target fund shall go toward these expenses.
Ollie is a 15 year old kick boxer who has been selected for the England squad. Your help in funding this trip will ensure he can represent his country at the WKC World Championships in Portugal, free of any financial constraints.
We are looking for your financial support to help send Ollie Moseley to Albufeira, Portugal in October to represent England in the World Kick Boxing Championships (WKC). He will be with the NWCKB organisation who has a very strong tradition of representing England in this competition and your help in funding the trip will ensure that we can send a strong fighter, free of any financial constraints.
The cost of the trip is a significant outlay, the burden of being successful. Ollie requires flights, transport, accomodation and kit.
About the project
Ollie qualified to represent England and will have a series of competitive bouts around the country before the World Championships. He has been training under the watchfull eyes of Chris Boughey, Gary Watkinson and Rick Allsop at NWCKB and will take his brown belt grading this May. He has also been busy honing his boxing skills with ex World Champion Anthony Farnell who has been kind enough to invite him to Arnies Gym, Manchester where fighter Paul Butler is currently training for his World title challenge.
The World Championships will be hosted by the World Karate and Kickboxing Council in Albufeira hence the trip to Portugal and while Ollie has recieved some sponsorship and his parents have provided financial support, the costs are eye watering. As kickboxing is not an Olympic discipline, he is not eligble for government funding, therefore your support is crucial in getting him there.
