Young Achiever Winner 2017: Becky Slater

Published 6 October 2017

Becky won the Young Achiever Category in WDH’s 2017 Love Where You Live Awards.

 

Becky previously came to the attention of the police a couple of years ago when she was causing low level anti-social behaviour but since then she has turned things around completely. She was encouraged to join the team at Raceway Karting, Pontefract where she has developed and gone from strength to strength. Becky is now Team Captain and one of the best drivers. She is passionate and supportive of other members and offers advice to help them improve. She is a role model of her generation.

She said: “I am speechless, I really didn’t think I would win! I plan to use my prize money to buy some new gear for karting. I can’t wait to tell the team that I won!”
