A young judo star is appealing for sponsorship to help her achieve her medal ambition.

Natasha Fraser, of North Shields, has been on the England judo squad for six years and part of the Great Britain squad for two years.

During that time, she has represented her country at events in France, Belgium, Netherlands, German, Portugal and more.

Natasha, who won gold at the England Open at the weekend, is currently junior British Champion and has been selected for the England squad at the junior European Cup this month and the cadet England team in Romania next month.

And while she has ambitions to take part in other European events this year, aiming to win a medal for her country, she is in need of funding to help her get there.

Natasha, who trains at the Parks Sports Centre in North Shields, is hoping businesses or individuals will be able to sponsor her to help pay for travel, accommodation and entry fees for the event.

She said: “My quest to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games.”
