Helping Lucy jump her funding hurdles

A young athlete from Corby is benefitting from sponsorship from a Gretton-based charity.

Lucy Hatton, 20, is ranked second in the UK, fifth in Europe and sixth in the world for senior 60m hurdles.

She is sponsored by The Travers Foundation, which helps 13 to 30-year-olds living in Northamptonshire, Rutland or Leicestershire improve their skills in sports, the creative arts and the performing arts.

The foundation helps fund Lucy’s travel and accommodation at competitions, coaching, kit and massage treatment. Visit the website www.travers-foundation.org.uk for details.
