Fencing Champ Credits Thornbury

World championship veteran fencer Caron Hale says she wouldn’t have risen as far as she has in the sport without the support of Thornbury Lifestyle Centre.
Caron, aged 58, has been fencing competitively all over the world for the past 18 years. Managers at Thornbury knew how expensive it is for Caron to compete as she receives no funding or sponsorship, so they agreed to waive her membership fee in return for her encouraging more people into the sport. Thornbury Lifestyle Centre currently hosts three fencing courses at the Severnside Sports Hall and these are taught across a range of ages and abilities on Saturday mornings.
Caron says: “I really can’t thank the Thornbury Lifestyle Centre enough – they’ve been absolutely brilliant.”
Caron has won a number of medals recently, and is now in training for the 2018 World Championships.
