13 Year old Lewis from Lancing is an extremely talented basketball player who works really hard to get better. Lewis has had a hard time over the last few years and finds Basketball is a huge outlet. His Starr Trust award will pay for Lewis to attend the Barcelona Camp with Sussex Bears, as well as training, equipment and league fees for the year.
Lewis says: “I am shocked and so happy, I can’t stop smiling, this is really going to help me so much as my mum struggles to pay for all of my basketball camps and often I can’t go which makes me sad but now she doesn’t have to worry and I can concentrate on getting even better at basketball.”
Update June 2019
Lewis made it into the Sussex basketball team on Sunday; he is one of 12 boys that have been selected out of over 100 boys his age in the whole of Sussex. His mum says: “We just want to thank you for the funding we have received as Lewis has improved massively this year due to being able to attend more basketball camps”.
