The RGF supports aspiring Archery Olympian – 21 year old Philippa Taylor (Pip), from Derby is the senior outdoor National Champion, junior 3 time national champion, holding 9 national records and achieved international team silver medal success on her debut outing with Team GB juniors in 2014.
Pip’s ultimate goal is to represent Great Britain at the Olympics and at the World Championships. Archery is self-funded and Pip has the huge financial burden of travelling to various international and national competitions consequently adding strain on her and her family.
Pip has been selected to compete with the Great Britain team at the forthcoming international competition in Antalya, Turkey this March. The award from the RGF will go a long way towards her training and travel costs.
Pip’s personal message to the RGF is – “This is the first year I’ve received support from The Rob George Foundation and this help and support will be invaluable. I want to thank the RGF for the opportunities their support will provide me; to be able to enter imperative competitions, buy new equipment and most importantly fuel costs to get to training, see my coaches Harry Heeley & Eric Bell more often, to relieve the burden of working extra hours that can impact on my training time and energy levels. I appreciate the amount of support the RGF has given me, in order to help me achieve my dreams within archery and to be the best that I can be!”
