In 2017, the generous people of Glossop donated what they could to help 11 year-old Ollie get to the Wado-Kai European Karate Championships in Sardinia.
During that highly successful event, Ollie did everyone proud and returned home with the Silver Medal. This year, Ollie is representing ENGLAND twice in the All-Nations (Formally WORLD) and European Championships, and is determined to go one better by ‘going for Gold.’
The All-Nations Championships is a prestigious event for Wado-kai Members from all nations to come together, competing in the true spirit of karate, harmony and respect and Ollie is determined to represent his country with honour.
But he can only do it with your help. “Last year, we were all completely overwhelmed by the support we received through local people’s donations. The money was so important. It allowed Ollie to compete overseas and he didn’t let anybody down!” Said his trainer.
The hard work and training is relentless with numerous build-up competitions leading up to this prestigious event.
Once again, Ollie is appealing for your help.
Please can you help to give him the best chance possible by supporting the ‘tombola’ at Glossop Outdoor Market on Saturday 14th July 2018, at the Artisan Market event?
