I have just secured my first major sponsorship deal with a local company called Partnership who specialise in pension products. They are based in Red Hill in Surrey and were looking to sponsor 4 local athletes that are showing talent to make it to the top in their discipline. I was nominated as 1 of 20 and after taking part in an interview, I was very fortunate to be chosen as 1 of the lucky 4. The contract is for 2012, but they are keen to continue their interest in local athletes after this time. I was also very fortunate to meet Rebecca Romero as she will act as our mentor for the duration. I will be able to discuss with her about competition pressures and her amazing experiences which will be invaluable insight.

This just leaves me to say a massive Thank You to Partnership for believing in me!
