Sammy Travis JD3

Dear All

The reason for writing is to make your aware of what Sammy is just about to embark on for charity.  Sammy was diagnosed as a Coeliac last November and had to embark on following a Gluten Free Diet.  To be perfectly honest, she has found the whole experience pretty tough, cutting out a lot of the familiar things that she used to loved to eat, being different from her friends and generally feeling upset that this condition is a life-long one and not a short fix!

Completely out of the blue, Sammy came to me and suggested that she might like to do a fundraising challenge of her own and help raise much needed awareness and funding for Coeliac Uk Ltd.  Obviously because of her love for swimming she has decided on a swimming challenge.

Sammy has set herself a challenge to swim the equivalent of the English Channel (22 miles) in a swimming pool over a period of 4 weeks (1st October - 29th October, 2016) in a 25m pool which equates to a total of 1416 lengths, so broken down into 354 lengths/week. She will do the majority of this challenge during her training each night at Avondale (where I will have the task of counting every length!) and will make up any shortfall at the weekend if necessary.

Knowing Sammy as I do, I have no doubt whatsoever that she will achieve her challenge, but wondered if you could help her by perhaps putting a link on your new website to her Just Giving Page (http://www.justgiving.com/ and then search for Sammy Travis) to help her fundraising.

I would like to thank you for taking the time on reading this and would appreciate any help towards Sammy reaching her goal.

Kind regards
