Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce News

Chamber member Harrogate Town Football Club was featured on BBC Look North on January 2. Seventeen years old Chloe Bellerby, a member of the Club’s highly successful ladies team, was interviewed in the Corporate Hospitality Suite and filmed at a floodlit training session at the CNG Stadium on Wetherby Road. Chloe, who lives in Harrogate, had suffered from mental health issues through her teenage years, culminating in an attempt to take her own life in August 2016. Since then, and with the help of her P.E. teacher at Rossett School and the coaching staff at Harrogate Town, her passion for football has motivated her to overcome her difficulties and to win a two year soccer scholarship at Sussex College in New Jersey

Chloe is seeking to raise money for the mental health charity MIND by completing a ten day walk from Leeds to London in April. Anyone wishing to sponsor her may do so at www.justgiving.com/Chloe-Bellerby
