A JUDO champion from Sheffield has been given some much-needed financial help from Specsavers Opticians.

Daniel Jeffries, aged 11, of Swallownest, represented Great Britain at the recent Irish Open Championships where he won all six of his fights – and a gold medal.

Specsavers Opticians, Crystal Peaks, sponsored Daniel £250 to fund his training and travel for the event.

Gil Vasey, store director, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Daniel as he becomes a member of the GB Judo squad.”

Chris Jeffries, Daniel’s dad and coach, said: “We are proud of Daniel’s achievements and grateful to Specsavers for their sponsorship.”
