Rosie added: “I’ve been going to Let’s Play since I was a little girl and I’ve made lots of friends at Let’s Play. I like all the play workers that work there. I like doing cooking, I like going to Avon Dassett and I like seeing my friends at youth group. Coach Richard is in charge of my training plan. I go to the gym to train, I have been swimming 30 lengths and doing classes at the gym. I have been running 5k to train for the triathlon."

The Let’s Play charity’s mission is to give young people the freedom and confidence to be themselves, to have fun with their peers and to increase the opportunities for young people with additional needs in the local community.
