Shan supports the Little Princess Trust

Head Coach Dave Presenting the Donation from GDS

We have our very own superstar within GDS – Shannon Cook who is working hard to donate towards a very worthy cause the Little Princess Trust. Her story behind this you can read in her own words below.

So far Shan has completed a 20 mile walk and is very shortly going to donating a large amount of her hair to be made into a wig for another child with cancer. Head Coach Dave donated a cheque towards her cause from GDS at our new venue Tividale earlier this week. For those who wish to donate please click the link below:

Shan:

“I was inspired by a talk from my former nursery school teacher, Mrs Humpries. She has bravely beat cancer and wanted to turn this into a positive experience for others. She told the story of the Little Princess charity during a sponsored swimming event. She told us of the excellent work they do. I swam a mile to help her raise money but was inspired to do more.

I really wanted to donate my beloved hair to allow Little Princess Trust to make a wig for another child in need but also wanted to raise money. I decided to do a 20 mile sponsored walk on the 30th April (I have even managed to rope my Mum and Auntie Lisa in!) and also ask people to sponsor me to cut off my hair (the date of this is to be confirmed as I would like to donate as much hair as possible). I have been waiting patiently and have even stopped myself from using straightners and curling irons so it is in the best condition possible.”

Well done Shan we are all extremely proud of you at GDS – keep up the fantastic work
