Harringay athlete appeals for help to compete in Winter Deaflympics

Lucindha Lawson has been shortlisted to compete but needs to raise funds to travel to the Winter Deaflympics

In the world of sports, dreams are the driving force that propels athletes to strive for greatness. Today, I am reaching out to our local community in the London borough of Haringey with a fervent plea for support as I embark on a life-changing journey – a spot in the shortlisted squad for the Winter Deaflympics 2024 with the esteemed Great Britain (GB) Deaf Futsal team.

This opportunity is not just a personal milestone; it’s a chance to represent our community, our town, and our nation on the global stage. However, this journey is not without its challenges, and that’s where your support becomes invaluable.

The GB Deaf Futsal team receives no funding from the government or UK Sport. As I prepare for the Winter Deaflympics, funds are crucial to cover training weekends, matches, flights, accommodations, and essential expenses. I’m aiming to raise approximately £2,500, contributing to the team’s overall goal of £40,000.

My goal extends beyond mere participation; it’s about competing at the highest level and bringing home the gold. Your support is not just a financial contribution; it’s a crucial role in making this dream a reality.

Every pound makes a direct impact on my journey. Your generosity ensures I can focus on training and performing at my best.

Share this cause with your friends, family, and social networks. Your network might include someone passionate about supporting aspiring athletes.
