Over the past few years Helen has expanded her business through Kirklees and into Calderdale. She is currently taking her Level 3 Certificate for Head Coaches in Badminton, and has recently been appointed U18 Yorkshire Badminton Coach. She works tirelessly to give children and young people opportunites that aren't always there, and is excited for the future and what it holds!
