2015 European Curling Championships
We are the England Ladies Curling Team!
We have played together internationally since 2009 and this November we will be competing in our third Women’s Curling Championships in Esbjerg, Denmark at the 2015 European Curling Championships.
The European Curling Championships run from November 20 to 28 and we need to get the five of us and our coach, John Sharp, to Denmark.
We receive very little funding to compete at this level so must raise all of the associated costs of competing ourselves. This is particularly challenging being so young (and students), often forcing us to choose between training competitions as we can’t afford to play them all.
We have shown that we have the potential and desire to achieve great things for English curling and have already made a big impression on the European curling stage.
Going forward we want to make it to the World Curling Championships and we also have huge ambitions to break into the British Olympic team in the future!
We are asking if you will consider sponsoring our team to give us the chance to progress to the World stage.
You can support us on our journey by giving to this campaign.
