PARALYMPIAN swimming star Jessica-Jane Applegate has picked up some technological fans after bagging sponsorship from an award winning phone company.

DPC, based in Southgates Road, have now thrown their weight behind the sporting hero by sponosring her and are helping her keep in touch with friends, family and fans by handing her the new state of the art phone.
Richard King, sales director at DPC, said: 'We are delighted to be able to support Jessica-Jane. Sponsorship is a key element in allowing athletes to pursue their sporting careers.
