I'm reffing at the 2016 Men's Roller Derby World Cup, in Calgary!
Now, I've been working as a referee in this sport for 5 years or more, having travelled thousands of miles in the process. All over the UK & Europe working with a multitude of leagues and communities in my career.
Like many it's been quite a rollercoaster and there's many ups and downs. But the opportunity to make my first ever foray across the Atlantic in the name of roller derby, is one that I no longer let pass by.
So whilst, I have always managed to make my own way from one game to another, I would never have made it this far in my career without the moral support and guidance of all the amazing people I met during my years as an official. But to help my world cup dreams come true, I'm hoping that I can get some help for this huge occasion, as without league or sport funding, these goals become ever harder to keep up.
The money I raise will be to help cover the costs of getting to this event:
Flights - £600, Sports Insurance - £70, Accommodation & food etc. - £230,
Whilst it pains me to ask for help, I wanted to make sure that I can do my best to thank any & everyone who is able to help me achieve my aim. So I'm offering a variety of rewards to make it more of an adventure for all of us!
Some are fun, some are serious, but all are heartfelt and will hopefully be small ways to show my appreciation and pay back some of that kindness.
So thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you again for all your help!
