Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Deafblind Scotland is a charity that supports adults who have a significiant combined sight and hearing loss. They work to help deafblind people in Scotland live as rightful members of their own communities and to encourage and support contact between deafblind people and sighted hearing people.

On 21st of August I'll be doing a zip-slide across the River Clyde in Glasgow to raise money for this worthy cause and I'm looking to you to offer me massive wads of cash to do it.

The crossing itself is 140 ft in the air and 700 ft across which is scary enough but add to that the fact that I'm a complete coward and you can see what a challenge this will be. Chances are you'll hear my screams no matter what part of the country you're in so to capitalise on this - whoever sponsors me the most I'll scream whatever hilarious and self-depricating phrase they nominate.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
