Allegra’s Ambition was set up in memory of Allegra who died suddenly and unexpectedly sixteen days after her 16th birthday.
Allegra was a wonderfully positive and happy person. She adored her life, family and friends and was bursting with ambitions, hopes and dreams. She was passionate about sport and was motivated by her dream of one day representing Great Britain at the Olympics. She loved nature and animals, especially ponies and horses, and was a keen rider. She was supportive and kind and cared deeply about injustice and inequality. Allegra inspired many people and would have done good things if she had had the chance to live her life and fulfill her dreams.
Our hope is that Allegra’s Ambition will encourage other young people to realise their potential and live their lives to the full.
