A TEENAGE karate star from Barnsley has won sponsorship from Assured Fire and Security.
Chloe Sheldon, from Hoyland, has been selected to represent England at the World Karate Federation Championships in Zurich.
Assured’s managing director, Simon Stokes, heard that Chloe needed help with funding from her sister Ethne and aunt Sharon Goodwin, who work at the company’s headquarters, in Dinnington.
“When Sharon told me about Chloe’s determination to make the England squad I was delighted to be able to offer her some support,” said Simon.
Sharon, said: “Chloe has been training towards this moment since she was seven years old but at the moment she is unemployed so financing the trip was proving difficult.
“This sponsorship really is helping her to keep her dream alive and help her to represent England.”
Eighteen year old Chloe’s kit will be sponsored by Assured.
