Congratulations to Lucy Peaty who has today been awarded the Sport Society Success Bursary. We received over 40 applications ranging from individuals to large sports clubs. All of the applications we received highlighted the fantastic work happening in our community and it was a very difficult decision.
Lucy has participated in Women’s American Football since the age of 14, and has competed at local and national level. In June 2018 Lucy was asked to train with GB Women’s American Football team. The current governing body for American Football BAFA is low on funding meaning each of the players have to pay for their own equipment, kit, travel and training.
In August this year Leeds are hosting the Women’s American Football European Championships, and the SSS bursary will allow Lucy to take part and pursue her dreams. We will be posting regular updates on Lucy’s progress and we wish her the best of luck.
