Sammy's Swim for Charity
Sammy's Swim the equivalent of the English Channel in a 25m Pool
I am Sammy, aged 10 and raising money for Coeliac UK because I have been recently diagnosed as a Coeliac.
Last November I was diagnosed as being a Coeliac and since then have had to embark on a Gluten Free Diet. To be perfectly honest, I have found the whole experience pretty tough, cutting out a lot of the familiar things that I used to love to eat, being different from my friends and generally feeling upset that this condition is a life-long one and not a short fix!
Recently when going through the Coeliac Uk Magazine with my mum, I noticed all the different fundraising challenges that were taking place. As I love sport and in particular am a very keen, competitive swimmer and swim for Stockport Metro, Saracens and Droylsden, I thought that I might like to do a fundraising challenge of my own to help raise much needed awareness and funding for Coeliac Uk Ltd.
Therefore I have set myself the 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 this equates to a total of 1416 lengths, so broken down into 354 lengths/week.
Sammy actually swam 2061 lengths in total, which is 51,525 metres or a massive 32 miles. So in the end Sammy swam across the channel and in fact 10 miles back. As I am sure you will agree with me that this is an awesome achievement which supported the charity Coleiac UK which Sammy is passionate about. The total raised so far is £663.75. Wow!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Year 10 Takes Kickboxing World Championships by Storm
Congratulations to Jack in year 10 Brunel House who is a member of NWCKB high peak kickboxing club in Buxton, who took the World Championships in Dublin by storm. It was one of the largest events of its kind for many years, but the NWCKB club returned home with seven gold medals and two bronze medals. Jack along with 7 other kickboxers have had the most successful year, by far, since the club was formed and reflects the high stand-ard of martial artists it is now producing.
As a result, the kickboxers are keen to give some-thing back and are hoping to raise awareness by supporting a charity group called Tender, whose mission is to highlight domestic abuse among young people and promote healthy relationships based on equality, respect and tenderness.
Jack fought in the British Championships on March 19th in Bradford. He won gold in -50kg Light Contact category and bronze in -50kg Points category. This makes him British Champion in Light Contact for his age and weight. He qualified to fight in the England team later this year at the World Championships in Florida in both categories.
