    Hey skating world.
    My name is David Richardson and I am the current British Figure skating Mens Champion.
    I have never received any long term funding to help pay for my sport and have to work a lot of hours and rely on help from my parents and grandparents...A LOT!!!! :)
    I have entered in to a 'competition' to receive £1,000 towards my upcoming season, i know in the skating world this is a drop in the ocean but every little helps and the sponsorship deal also comes with other attributes that will be a huge help too,
    HOWEVER . . . i need votes to be able to get through to the latter stages of the competition. This is were your help comes in!!!! :D
    All it takes is an email address and 60seconds of your time . . .it really is that easy!!! It would really be a appreciated from me and could help me out tremendously this season!!!

    THE LINK IS: http://www.bringontomorrowfoundation.com/final.php?id=125

    A huuuuuuuuuuuuuge thank you in advance if you choose to help me out and in return maybe I will get a chance to compete in a rink near you!!!! :)

    Best wishes and "happy skating" :cool:

    David

    Best of luck David!

    I've always enjoyed your creative programs. You have a real flair for presentation. :)

    I hope you win this award and get even more funding in the future.

    My family have all voted- I hope you win.
    Its great that you have found a novel way of raising training funds- good for you!
    The people on this forum care about skating and know how hard it can be to make your way in this crazy sport so I hope they will all take the time to vote- that would be real "fan power" if we could make the difference for you!!!!

    It's a shame that the only David's video I could find on YouTube was a not very successful performance from Hungarian Nationals (as a guest - if I am not mistaken, Hungarian coach Gurgen Vardanjan is now head coach at Nottingham Ice Centre and coaches David):

    David might not have the strongest jump arsenal but all of his programs I've seen (and I did have the pleasure of seeing him live a number of times :)) have been very interesting and he presented them beautifully. :)
