A Truro-based grant funding consultancy is helping a local Paralympic fencing hopeful in his bid to get to the Rio Paralympics in 2016.
K2 Funding’s support will enable Matthew Campbell-Hill, the 2012 national champion of wheelchair Sabre and twice World Cup medallist, to continue competing on the international circuit.
Kate McCavana, director of K2 Funding, said: “K2 Funding’s mission is to help businesses and communities overcome the challenges they face to secure grant funding.
“I have been inspired and humbled by Matthew’s story. He is a very driven and talented sportsman and I believe he should be given the chance to achieve his Paralympic dream. It’s hugely exciting to be playing a part in his success and I feel privileged to be supporting such an inspirational young man.”
Campbell-Hill is due to compete in wheelchair Sabre and Epee for Great Britain this autumn in Warsaw, Poland, against over 20 countries.
If successful, he will go on to the next round of Paralympic qualifying matches in Hungary later this year.
