Despite winning three medals at the Rio Paralympics, Jessica-Jane’s funding has been slashed, as she was unable to reach a personal best during 2016.

Jessica-Jane, from Burgh Castle near Great Yarmouth, competes in the S14 classification for swimmers with a learning disability.  She and her family were devastated to learn that the gap in funding may result in her being unable to represent her country at the 2020 Paralympics.

With a shortfall of £15,000, the team at Nwes has been inspired by her story and is proud to lead a campaign to ensure Jessica-Jane is able to compete at Tokyo 2020.

Dawn Applegate, Jessica-Jane’s mother says.  “We are so grateful to Nwes for assisting us – it is going to take a huge amount of pressure away from us.”.

After raising over £16,000 in 2017, our support continues into 2018  to ensure Jessica-Jane reaches the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. We have new events coming soon and some exciting collaborations with local businesses this year – so take a look below and watch this space to keep informed and find out how you can get involved.
