About

I am a regular volunteer at the emergency night shelter and try and support them in anyway I can. A few years ago I sold gardening services to raise money for them, and last year I ran 7 races (2 short runs, 4 half marathons and 1 marathon). Now I'm looking skyward for my next challenge.

Event details

FCENS Sky Walk

My Local emergency night shelter (FCENS) provides a roof, food and help for those in need over the winter months. People sometimes find them selves homeless and living on the streets is difficult and hard. Often they are not even seen as people, just things that need to be moved along.
I am scared of heights, but the challenge of abseiling down the 80 meter orbit tower is nothing compared to the challenge homeless people face every day. I'm doing this to both raise money for this charity and to raise awareness of the challenges people on the street face.
Any donation large or small helps to keep the shelter open each winter and is appreciated equally by volunteers and guests at the shelter.
