Church and Manor View Care Home in Doncaster have sponsored local sporting here Macey Leigh Hennessy as she starts her journey to defend her Taekwondo title.
Macey Leigh, has been competing in the sport since she was 4 years old. Now five years later she has a number of titles and competition wins under her belt and was crowned the British Taekwondo Champion in 2014.
Macey, Leigh won a Bronze medal at the 5th Yorkshire Open championship last week, and next month she will be competing in the Dutch Masters in Holland. She currently holds the Gold medal in this competition and will be working hard to defend her crown. She’ll then be whisked back to Doncaster, where she’ll compete at the National Championships in June.
Julie Harrison, Care Home Manager said: “We all wish Macey Leigh the very best of luck. She’s a very determined young lady, who entrances all of the residents whenever she comes to visit. I think some of them find it hard to imagine that there can be so much energy in a young girl.”
