For anyone who’s thinking about fundraising, I say just do it! It doesn’t matter if it’s 10 miles or 100, or if you raise £50 or £500 – charities need our support more than ever. With the match funding from ACT my total reached £1,000. It was an incredible feeling, as I never thought I’d be able to raise that much.
Queenscourt Hospice is close to many people at Paymentshield. We know first-hand the difference the hospice makes to the patients and their families at the time they need it most. Speaking for myself, the abseil was both terrifying and exciting, especially when you had to lean back over the edge and start walking backwards. I’m not great with heights, so I wish I could say I enjoyed the view, but I just concentrated on looking at my feet and the wall!
What an amazing day! Me and my 70-year-old father-in-law, who suffers with Parkinson’s, rode the Ride London 100. An incredible achievement from him, and I hope the funds raised help the research into the disease. Thanks ACT.
