About This Project

11 year-old Lacie Mae started diving in 2015 for Manchester Aquatic Dive Team. Later in the year Lacie was diagnosed with severe ADHD, but this was not going to stop her!


She has gone from strength to strength, competing locally, in various locations across the UK and Dublin in the Irish Open Championships.


In 2018, Lacie qualified for the National Skill Championship and also qualified to represent the North West in the England Schools Diving Championship Finals.


At the time of application Lacie had qualified for the National Age Group Championship Finals, Sheffield. She had already taken part in many fundraising activities including a sponsored somersault which raised £200.


The Trustees were very impressed with Lacie’s competitive spirit and determination to succeed and awarded her a grant of £433 towards the Sheffield competition.
