cheque close
Sam Gibbonson (14) is the grandson of Joyce Smith and a pupil of King Edmunds School, Ashingdon, Essex. 



In October 2012 Sam ran 10k in the school Charity Day Run and chose Waveney Sailability as his charity in memory of his Granddad, Joe Smith.  The weather on the day was terrible, cold, wet, and even a bit of snow.  Even though he had just recovered from tonsillitis, Sam managed to complete the 10K (6.1 miles) and raised a magnificent £530.50.

Sam, his two sisters and younger brother,  stayed with their grandmother for the Whitsun school holiday and he took the opportunity to visit our boathouse and present us with a cheque.  His sisters and brother all grabbed the opportunity to have a ride around the Broad in our of our little boats but Sam declined - said he liked to keep his feet on the ground!

Thank you Sam.  We'll let you know how we spend the money.
