Handball

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

Hello to all,

I am Holly Lam-Moores, I am from Crawshawbooth and used to go to Alder Grange Community and Technology School. I now play Handball for Great Britain and i'm training full time in London towards the Olympics next year. I was also voted handball player of the year by the British Olympic Association in 2010.

As you are all probably aware handball is a minority sport therefore i receive no funding from the British Handball Association and i'm 100% self funded. The British Handball Association no have absolutely no money left and have asked me to fund myself in our next training camp in Brazil. They are asking me for 600 for my flight.

Therefore i am writing to you all (as a local valley girl) open to any suggestions you may have as to how i can raise the money. Or if any of you may know anybody who knows someone else who may be interested in sponsoring me for this trip, or sponsoring me up until the Olympic Games next year.

Thank you,

Holly Lam-Moores

Re: Handball

Hi Holly
My Nephew Josh plays Handball and is currently playing for Great Britain's Under 23 Squad and has the same problem with funding.

Over the past 2 years he has been all over the World and as a family we feel that he should take this opportunity as the experience must be wonderful at such a young age.

It takes a lot of hardwork on his part because as you say Handball is a little known sport and not particularly well funded. We have as a family raised money for Josh by e.baying and car boot sales and helping him in any way we can.

I sincerely hope you do find a local sponsor and that you can have your chance to represent England at the Olympics, it will be difficult but keep your chin up and keep on looking

Re: Handball

Hi Chris thank you for your kind message!

Hi Chloe, my parents have also funded me for the past 3 years but unfortunately are no longer able to. Really great there are more people from Rossendale playing handball, we really need the exposure! The British Handball Association have been able to fund our training camps and competitions up until this point as they just seem to have run out.

It's a real shame everything seems to rely on money!

Thanks for your suggestions and i hope Josh continues to play!

Holly

Re: Handball

have you asked at Rossendale Radio, they could maybe do a feature about you/Handball etc, you may find a local business that would sponsor you,

good luck with it all
