#FundFencing

With your support, British fencers will be able to enter competitions all over the world to ensure they qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

British Fencing's recent loss of UK Sport funding has resulted in athletes paying entry fees, flights and accommodation plus all of their expenses out of their own pocket unless they have secured sponsorship.

#FundFencing has been created to spearhead a number of campaigns that will support GB athletes' dreams come true by entering the 2020 Olympic games and all the competitions between now and then. With your kind support, you'll help pay for entry fees, travel costs, training fees and accommodation but most of all, you will allow fencers to concentrate on being athletes and reduce the worry of sourcing funding that will enable them to train for longer and be the best fencers they can be! 

Please help us spread the word of #FundFencing by sharing content on social media! 

Want to raise funding for the BF Charity? Contact British Fencing at headoffice@britishfencing.com

Sponsorship options are still available for teams and individual athletes, please contact British Fencing, headoffice@britishfencing.com.

GIVE US THE POWER

This campaign was produced by Céline Ramseyer and directed by Helen Uleksin students studying at University of the Arts London.

They wanted to represent the loss of funding having an impact on fencer’s ability to win by flickering the fencer’s equipment on and off, removing the ability to fence.

20% raised in the first 12 months from 14.06.2018, will be given to the production team. The 80% plus everything raised after this period will be given to the athletes.

There's more value in sport than our 4-yearly dose of gold medals. How about "fun". Good luck. Ps. I last fenced in 1967

I have enjoyed supporting Richard Kruse through olympic and world cup events on the telly and online. This exceptional athlete, as well as all the other potential Great britain olympians are ambassadors for our sport, and we should support them!
