The Sabre Club Charitable Foundation

Welcome to your website, designed to help you apply for funding or to donate to furthering sabre fencing because our young fencers need help.

We are here to help sabre fencers succeed.

We want everyone to enjoy the amazing sport of sabre fencing. But that requires money as you’ll see from our donations page. Why should you be put off just because you don’t come from a wealthy background? You shouldn’t be. If you have a passion or a talent you should be able to pursue that to the best of your ability. So apply for a grant and if we can, we will help. It’s early days so the grants will have to be small but we’d love to help if we can.

The founding trustees are all sabre fencers who want to make a difference and have benefitted themselves from the joys of sabre fencing. There are three trustees: Jacqueline Esimaje-Heath, Mo Mansoori and Peter Howes.
