SCORES of local athletes across Herefordshire aspiring to gold in 2020 and 2024 have already picked up funding or free training access via the Halo Sport Foundation since it launched, and now there's more money up for grabs.

The Foundation - headed up by Patron Paralympic swimming legend Sascha Kindred CBE - is opening the next round of applications on December 20 offering eligible athletes - those living or studying in the county and a member of an affiliated sports club with a training base here - the chance to apply for funds to support training and competition fees.
