The Ron Pickering Memorial Fund is inviting young athletes to apply for a grant to support their progress in the sport. European medallists this summer, Becky Lyne, Greg Rutherford, Sam Ellis, Rhys Williams and Nathan Douglas have all benefited from the generous grants given to developing athletes. Last year alone, over three hundred athletes benefited from the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund.


Jean Pickering said: “This is the time to apply for a grant from the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund. Applications are welcome from athletes aged between 15 and 23, who are in education and may need financial help towards training and provision of equipment.”


Applicants should be medallists from their National Schools, AAA U17, U20 or U23 Championships or in the top six of the appropriate UK ranking lists.


The closing date for applications is 30 November and an application form may be obtained by sending a stamped addressed envelope to Jean Pickering, 11 Wendover Drive, Welwyn, Herts AL6 9LT, or downloaded from the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund website.
