Hi. I'm Talula Trouble
I am a Northwest based roller derby skater living in Deeside skating with the Wirral Whipiteres and involved with other local leagues assisting in assessing minimum skills, coaching, guest skating, benching and advising. I live for roller derby and am ecstatic to have been selected as part of the Team Wales World Cup squad that will play in Texas in December. Since starting roller derby 3 years ago, representing my country has been my main goal and now that I have the opportunity to do so I must make every effort to make it happen.
As part of the squad I will train mostly in Cardiff due to the majority of the skaters being Southern based, being based in Deeside this is a 5 hour drive. There are also scheduled bouts in Ireland and all over the uk, as well as tournaments and dates TBC. The more of these I attend the greater chance I have of achieving my dream and being a part of the team that takes Welsh roller derby to Texas. Unfortunately, my lowly teaching assistant's wage won't cover the cost of transport to training and bouts nor competing in the World Cup if I am selected for the final team which is why I'm asking for your help. I will do everything in my power to make it to the final squad and your support is greatly appreciated.
As my way to say thank you, in true derby spirit I would like to place each name into a raffle from which 3 names will be drawn. Names drawn will receive a printed scrim for themselves and a tailored training session for their league. If for any reason I am unsuccessful on making the final World Cup team, all money raised for this will be donated to local children's sports charities (specific charities TBC).
Thanks so much for your help, I can't express how much I appreciate it.
