The picture is the current England ladies team I'm second from the right. We have just won the European Championships in April 2017.
I have recently been IPA ladies world champion in 2015 and retained this in 2016. Then in 2017 became IPA world mixed pairs champions with my fantastic partner Clint I'Anson.
My life has recently changed a great deal as myself and my partner Rachel have become foster carers in November 2016. We now have have 2 boys aged 9 and 10 that live with us.
This has turned our lives upside down. Rachel also was playing for England, but unfortunately has had to give this up to be a full time foster carer.
I work full time and also care for the children when at home.
As you can appreciate money is now a bit tight as Rachel gave up her full time job to be a full time foster carer and we have gone from a 2 person family to a 4 person family.
I would like to raise enough just to cover the costs of playing in these tournaments and representing my country which myself and the whole family are SO proud of.
I will have to travel on my own as the children are not allowed out of school when the tournaments are on. They love watching the live stream though.
So please if you could help in any way you can; it would be most appreciated.
