The Facebook posts written over the last few days have summed up perfectly what a friendly, happy, outgoing & inspiring person Rachel was.
Although we only knew Rachel for a relatively short period at university, playing squash for a year or two before we graduated (longer for those of you medics who seemed to be at uni forever!), the impact I think she had on us during that short amount of time was huge. Constantly smiling, encouraging and just a generally lovely person, Rachel I'm sure will be sorely missed by all.
Always committed to everything she did, Rachel would always be there for squash matches, even when it involved a 5 hour car trip to Birmingham (I think play lasted a total of 30 mins between 5 of us once we got there!), or when she could barely walk from the previous days exertion, which to us would probably mean crawling back from a night at Blu Bambu, but to Rachel was more likely to be a triathlon, crazy canoeing through city canal systems or orienteering across half the length of the UK - truly incredible and inspiring!
I hope this page will help to raise a bit of money for the glencoe mountain rescue team, something I'm sure Rachel would appreciate. So please donate whatever you can and feel free add your own comments/memories/photos. I'll put this page on FB so the squash teams from uni can see it, but feel free to send the page on if there's anyone you think I've missed off.
