Rachel Fordham from Rugby is one of 500 people to win a place with the World of Difference UK programme.
The programme gives people the chance to work for a UK charity of their choice for four months.
Rachel has chosen to support the Matt Hampson Foundation.
She said:“I haven’t heard of anyone in Warwickshire that has won a place . It’s fantastic for the foundation but also for the town of Rugby due to the connection with the game and with Matt being a England under 25 player and Leicester tiger .”
