Nwes is delighted to support for Paralympic Swimmer and gold medallist Jessica-Jane Applegate MBE

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.”.

Nwes has a fundraising target of £20,020 per year to ensure Jessica-Jane reach the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics.  We have some exciting fundraising activities coming up – see below and watch this space to keep informed and find out how you can get involved.
