Lizell HeatherCambridgeshire Rugby
My name is Lizell Heather, I am a womens rugby player, playing for Thurrock T-Birds. We are a championship team who strive for bigger and better. As a team we have won our league year in year out for quite some time. This coming season we can compete for a place in the women’s premiership. Certainly something both I and the team are pushing for over the next 10 months. Outside of Thurrock I also play and coach for Eastern Counties.
I have been a primary school PE teacher in Cambridgeshire for the past 8 years whilst studying part time for my degree, which I have finished this year. I have been accepted onto a secondary PE PGCE course in Bedfordshire starting this coming September, this is a voluntary course as there are not grants for this particular subject.
For the last 4 years I have played for Thurrock I have been traveling once a week from St Neots - Thurrock for squad training and travelling as far as Bath for games on the weekend. As you can imagine that is quite a distance at a significant cost. Without an income for this season I am looking for a personal sponsor/sponsors to cover the cost of my travel expenses.
Our preferred sponsor
My ideal sponsor will have a passion for sport and physical activity, in particular women's sport and the enthusiasm to see it continuously progress. A willingness to work together to achieve a common goal.
