Howarth Timber and Building Supplies has announced its sponsorship of Rio 2016 hopefuls Rebecca Gallantree and Hollie Arnold.
Rebecca Gallantree is one of the most successful female divers in British history and is the 2015 Diving World Champion. The Leeds resident has 18 national synchro and individual titles to her name and was named Leeds Sportswoman of the Year in 2015.
Rebecca, who recently won two gold medals at the Diving National Cup in Southend commented: “This year has started really well for me, and I’m delighted to receive an extra boost from the support that Howarth Timber is giving me. Knowing that I’ve got the backing of a historic Yorkshire firm during an Olympic year means a great deal to me.”
Jason Sinclair, finance director at Howarth Timber, added: “Rebecca looks all set for a fantastic year and we couldn’t be happier to be sponsoring one of our own – a Leeds lass! We hope that our backing will help Rebecca continue her excellent form and keep her training on track as she aims to go to the Olympics.”
Howarth Timber will also support Paralympic javelin thrower Hollie Arnold in her bid to qualify for the Rio Olympic Games.
The Paralympian is a double World Champion, ranked first in the world for F46 Javelin. Howarth has donated £3,500 which will contribute to Hollie being able to compete in Rio with a new prosthetic arm and state-of-the-art competition javelins.
The company was first introduced to Hollie by the charity Caudwell Children, which has supported her since the 2012 Paralympics in London. Howarth partnered with the charity three years ago and has since helped to raise over £50,000 to assist with equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children across the UK.
Hollie said: “With less than a year to go until the Paralympics, I am currently undergoing an intensive training regime to get me in peak condition and to correct any technical issues. I am incredibly thankful for the support of Howarth Timber in helping me work towards Rio 2016 and achieve my goal of winning a Paralympic gold medal.”
Jason Sinclair, finance director at Howarth Timber, added: “We are pleased that Caudwell Children were able to put us in contact with a determined young athlete like Hollie and we are delighted to be able to support her. We hope that our donation will allow her to focus fully on her training in the build up to Rio and come home with a medal!”
