The Freeman Family – Past Grant Recipients
Sandy Freemans mum, Carol, spoke about her other children who also received grants in years past. Luke and Abigail, both promising dancers at the time, received a grant in 1998, which allowed them to continue with their dance lessons and eventually travel overseas. Since then they have danced in mnay cities and countries, including a stint at the Mooulin Rouge in Paris. Carol also told us about her daughter, Jennifer, a cerabal palsy sufferer, who also received a grant (in 2007), which enabled her to continue with her swimming lessons. Jennifer has qualified for the Cerabal Palsy World Games in England in 2015. Thanks, Carol, for telling us and everyone about the successes of Luke, Abigail & Jennifer and we hope that Sandy’s grant will help her the way to similar achievements.
