2018 Sportsaid Scotland - bursaries

Scottish Fencing is very grateful to SportsAid Scotland, and its sponsor the Robertson Trust, for 2018 bursaries awarded to six Scottish fencers: Jess Corby, Kate Daykin, Chloe Dickson, Sarah-Jane Hampson, Mhairi McLaughlin and Katie Smith.

We were invited to make six nominations and asked fifteen of our fencers to make applications to us.  We are pleased that all six of those we submitted were successful, although all of our fifteen would have been worthy recipients.
