I have to say a very large thank you to the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund for supporting me throughout 2012. They are a wonderful charity helping to aspire young GB athletes fulfil their dreams in memory of Ron Pickering, the great athletics coach, BBC sports commentator and TV Presenter.
It has benefitted many young athletes over the years that have gone on to become World, Commonwealth and European Champions. I unfortunately had never heard of this charity before, until the start of this year, when I had the chance to be on a GB Team with Ron’s son Shaun, who is now a UKA Throws Coach. Hopefully with the 2012 Olympics and 2012 Commonwealth Games looming, this small charity will start to gain more sponsors and recognition for the services they provide to young up-and-coming athletes!
