Tribute by Anna Allgrove

2 October 2014

Hello. I just wanted to thank you for the efforts you are making to raise such an important issue in Katie’s memory.  I went to Sutton High (I was in the year above Katie and played netball with her). I can’t profess to have been great friends with Katie but I vividly remember her huge smile and kind nature.  I am much more aware of the risks now and have recently had our gas fire looked at, only to discover there were faults, that we have now had fixed.  I check our smoke and carbon monoxide alarms regularly and ensure all my friends and colleagues are also aware of the need to do so.  I can’t imagine what you have all been through but I just wanted to let you know that your campaign is truly having a positive impact.  I really wouldn’t be as proactively cautious as I am now or as aware of the risks had it not been for all your hard work.
