As many of you may know, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on the 23rd December 2014 & I'm now on my journey through chemo & radiotherapy. Sadly, I'm not the only one, there are many of us & it's due to the brilliant cancer teams that we have the support and treatment that we need - Velindre is my lifeline, a lifeline to so so many of us!

Zipslide Challenge for Velindre

My son, Archie (7yrs) & I made a pact last year to do the Zipslide at the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow - it's 70m high, 800m long & does 40miles an hour over the quarry that's 80m deep...eek (I can't swim & i don't like heights) ! Since my diagnosis others have agreed to join us, so now we want to see if we can beat the NDAC record of 200 people in a day! we need you!

My brother Rick will be entertaining us with his 12 hours of challenges chosen by us, and live music, a charity auction and the bar & great food will be available all day too.

So whether you want to join in, get sponsored or just cheer and dig deep in to your pockets, please join us and please help raise some funds for a brilliant brilliant charity that is a lifeline to so many of us x

You can book your Zipslide here, or look out for groupon offers:

Please shout if you'd like to donate to our Charity Auction too.
