About

Life is full of ups and downs, and I've had a good many of those. But I'm doing this bungee jump for two great charities to show that whatever life throws at you, you can always bounce back.

I've been an alcoholic for many years, and now I'm in recovery. Carecent has helped me tremendously when I was homeless, and now I've got somewhere to live I'd like to give something back. I've always loved animals and I'd also like to help the RSPCA with their wonderful work.
