Funds needed for netball trip
PUBLISHED: 20:00 23 July 2015
A Weston netball player who will represent England next month is appealing for donations to help fund the trip of a lifetime.
Tom Allen, aged 21, will travel to Australia for the sport’s world cup and will play for the national under 23s side.
He needs to raise £3000 to cover the various costs of the trip, which include flights, equipment and accommodation.
Tom, who is studying to be a PE teacher, got into playing indoor netball later in life despite having grown up around the sport.
He said: “It’s a massive honour to represent England in a national sport and I want to use this opportunity to break down the female-only stereotype.”
