10yr old Swims for Ahimsa
Although the this year’s Cow Challenge 2013 has been pushed by to September, this hasn’t distracted Gopi from doing his challenge. Gopi is 10 years old and is looking to swim 2.5 km on Friday 31st May at Westminster Lodge in St Albans, Herts.
Gopi is halfway to his target of £1,000 for helping raise awareness for Ahimsa calves. Now is a good time to help him achieve his goal.
A group of 10 enthusiastic sportsmen and women are planning to cycle 55 km from London to Oxford on the 7th July for the Ahimsa cause. If you are made of stern stuff, come and join them, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Join us for a mOOving experience across London.
Whether you decide to walk, skip, strut or dance, come join the fun – cross 8 London Bridges to raise money for UK’s first slaughter-free milk campaign.
Why we need your help?
The Lotus Trust’s Ahimsa Slaughter-Free Milk Campaign is raising awareness, educating and lobbying for the highest welfare of cows. The Ahimsa Dairy Foundation produces slaughter-free milk and now requires equipment to continue providing high quality, high welfare milk. Together, they are conducting research to improve the quality of life of cows and calves in aiding the production of healthier milk for human consumption.
This pioneering campaign ensures that cows are not slaughtered after their natural milk production ceases, and that young calves are free to roam in an open environment without the fear of becoming a meal on someone’s plate.
Our target is to raise £15,000, please join us on the day or contribute towards our important work.

Last year, Gopi Tanna raised £630 for the campaign by cycling and walking 12km
This year Gopi (10yrs old) has set himself the target of swimming 2,500 metres –with no prompting (ie. 2.5km – but not across the Thames!), he is looking to raise £1,000 for cows.
Gopi is an avid reader (fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings’); an awesome drummer (plays the Indian ‘mrdanga’); and a superb swimmer (like a fish in water).
