Megan Fosberry's dream of becoming a Paralympian in archery has taken a leap forward.  Cedars Coaching Academy has generously donated much needed funding to help Megan on her way to Rio de Janiero, Brazil in 2016 as we became her first sponsor.

This local youngster has a bright future ahead of her, with glowing references from Archery GB, who rate her highly.  Megan is part of their Paralympian Pilot Academy for 2014-2015 as she shows the potential to become Paralympain for Great Britain.

Megan is also being sponsored every month by the Connolly Foundation, a charity based in Luton whilst she remains on the elite training programme.

If you think you would like to help Megan with some funding please contact her by email: meganjfosberry@hotmail.co.uk
