Current Year 10 student Amena has been involved in organising and participating in charity events alongside her family for a number of years. They are a part of the ‘Tri 4 Life’ charity organisation that’s been promoting healthy and proactive lifestyles for over 15 years.

Amena regularly participates in gruelling triathlon events to raise money for a wide number of causes, supporting both local charities such as Stick ‘n’ Step and national/international organisations including Samaritans, male suicide prevention charity CALM and Rubicon’s overseas disaster response team. Just recently they’ve helped raise almost £20,000 towards these charities. Their most recent event was a triathlon in the British Virgin Islands, contributing aid and 400 bicycles to the recovery efforts after the islands were devastated by Hurricane Erma in September 2017.

The incredible efforts of Amena, her family and the Tri 4 Life charity have recognised this week at an audience with The Princess Royal. Renowned for her active involvement with over 200 charities, Princess Anne travels the country to meet people doing incredible work for charitable causes and on Wednesday 16th October she spent a morning in Knowsley, hosting an audience with the Tri 4 Life team and personally congratulating them on their efforts.
