He is currently the British National Champion in the 16 years age group for 50m 100m and 200m butterfly.
Jacob’s parents struggle to cover travel and competition costs. Additionally, as they care for Jacob’s foster siblings if they have to travel with Jacob for competitions they do not receive the daily support for foster care.
Jacob was very excited to receive a grant from the Lord-Lieutenants’ Fund for Young and Talented:
There is always a competition or kit that needs to be replaced, the grant will really help with the British Championships coming up. The financial support also means that others believe in me and that helps a lot with the psychological aspects of my training. Thank you all so much.
