Rebecca set for European Championships 2008
Rebecca has her sights on Italy in August and the IJKA European karate championships and has received a tremendous boost this weekend when a cheque for £550 arrrived in the post.
The Cheque was from the Goodricke Appeal Fund; that supports deaf young people inYork and North Yorkshire. Rebecca had sent details to The Goodricke Appeal fund via the hearing support team at Selby, they not only met the full projected cost, but also provide a little extra for some spending money.
Rebecca has to carefully balance studying for her exams in the summer and preparing for the championships. In preparation Rebecca hopes to compete in the Irish open Shotokan Championships on the 27th April 2008, because of school requirements it will have to be a flying visit flying to Cork on the Saturday and back early Monday morning. Rebecca will have just turned sixteen and will have to compete in the under 19 catogries, this may prove to be a big step up.
Rebecca would like to publicaly thank the Goodricke Appeal Fund and the support that she has recieved from Pauline Leddy from the Hearing Support Team at Selby over the last Seven years.If you have jumped into the middle of our blog via a search engine you may want to go to our latest post; please follow the link below that will relaunch the blog
