Leah van der Mescht, has just turned 9 and is a very talented young, hard working figure skater. One of the youngest National Figure Skaters in the country!
She started skating for fun at the age of 4 and joined the Junior Blades Figure Skating Club to learn the basics of skating. As she is home schooled, this was seen as her sport. Her love for skating gradually grew and she was keen to learn more. Later, we invested in private coaching for her and she has since grown in leaps and bounds!
She has recently qualified to represent South Africa internationally, in the following competitions
1)Santa Clause cup, Budapest, Hungary(5-9 December 2018)
2)Grand Prix of Bratislava, Slovakia(14-16 December 2018)
The opportunity to go compete and gain experience internationally is a dream experience for her and will most definitely help her to improve her skating even more and reach for bigger dreams!
Unfortunately, figure skating in South Africa is solely funded by the parents, and for this amazing opportunity, Leah would need much more financial assistance than what her parents can supply. Her expenses include flights, transport, passports, visas, accommodation, meals, coaching and coaches expenses, entry fees, official clothing etc.
Leah would really appreciate any consideration for donations and sponsorships towards the above expenses relating to her trip.
Please help Leah reach her dream!
All funds will go into her personal bank account for her travels.
