Viv has worked tirelessly for many years to promote and support the sport of fencing within England.
This has included serving on the board of England Fencing, organising and running the EYCs for multiple years, travelling the world supporting England teams, and lobbying MPs and anyone else she can meet with to get fencing back on the GCSE curriculum (amongst other things). Additionally, Viv has worked hard to raise awareness, recognition of and inclusion of wheelchair fencing athletes wherever possible.
For many years Viv represented GB internationally and after retiring from competition she has worked tirelessly to grow and develop British Disability Fencing and is a “true fencing stalwart with a heart of gold!”
