Voice readers give young fencer Teagan a boost

TOP FENCER: Teagan Williams-Stewart (photo: gbsylvie10)

A COUPLE of weeks ago, we featured Teagan Williams-Stewart. Despite being Britain’s best fencer in her age group, the 16-year-old, right, was struggling with funding.

Her mum, Curleen Williams, has provided this update: “Since the fundraising appeal appeared in The Voice the amount has increased slowly but surely, we are just over the halfway point. Teagan was overwhelmed by a lovely lady – who is based in the US, but is a former GB athlete/Olympian – who donated a substantial sum, shared Teagan’s story on her Instagram and sent her a personal message of support.

“Each donation, no matter the size, shows that people care and are behind her and that is very motivating.”
