Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 

 

When I was a younger my Great Granddad died as the result of Alzheimers. His condition slowly deteriorated throughout my younger years. I never knew the man that I have heard so many stories about. The one thing that I do remember is seeing him in his home and him having the biggest smile on his face. Even in his condition he held his smile and I have heard from the family that he was a very good and fun man.


I never really knew my Great Granddad. However, I see this as all the more reason to raise money in his memory. What if the cure for his dementia was found back when I was younger? The way I see it, I don't want young children growing up and not knowing their family members just like I didn't. 

 

If you donate you will not only be helping out those with the condition, you will be helping their loved ones too. 

 

Now the serious bit is over, lets have some fun! I will be getting a Full Body Wax on the 22nd December in my home. This constitutes everything from the neck, down. I mean EVERYTHING!

 

My brother Jake and my Mum Paula will be assissting me in the waxing. If you are free on the day and you want to contribute in causing me a substantial amount of pain, you can come and claim your own part of my body to wax! Message me on Facebook if you're interested.

 

I think that this is a hugely ridiculous and stupid thing to do, but what the hell, It's all banter! The whole thing will be recorded and put onto YouTube so you can all see my pain online. 

 

Please donate, if it is £1 or £100. Anything will do, I am very greatful! Oh, your words of encouragement will also be very welcome as I think I may well die! :)

 

Donating through JustGiving is easy, fast and totally secure. Your personal details are safe with JustGiving – they won't sell them on or send spam emails. Once you donate, they will send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the Alzheimers Research.

 

Please help out a good cause and do your good deed of the day! :)
