Hi, I'm Drew and I would like to raise funds for our Chosen Charity of the Year, FACE, whilst simultaniously confronting my fear of falling.
I'm the Digital Sales Executive at Wessex Garages Nissan, Cribbs Causeway.
The team from FACE Filton, (Foundation for Active Community Engagement) have asked if we would like to join them in completing a skydive.
As falling is my biggest fear I first thought that it wouldn't really be for me, but after a few days I came to the realization that this could be the reason I have been waiting for to face my biggest fear. The Fear of Falling!
In order to make this happen, I need to raise in excess of £380.
But this is not good enough for me.
As it is going to be a huge achievement for me and being a little scared of the idea of jumping out of a perfectly good plane, I need a good motivator. If I raise the huge sum of £550 for our charity, I will have no choice other than to push forward and exit the plane.
Here is a little bit about FACE Filton and why you may wish to donate and help me achieve my goal.
FACE are a charity based in Filton, Bristol and do a lot of good work for the local community. They host and attend many fayres throughout the year to help raise money for their community centre.
They are outstanding at giving support to a wide range of ages, from children to pensioners, whether they have disabilities, behaviour problems or mental health conditions. FACE create an opportunity to socialise, play games with peers, be creative and to celebrate life and happiness.
FACE Filton are in need of some valuable pieces of equipment. Some of which are:
A wheel chair lift.
A disabled shower room.
And maybe a few more fish for the tank in their sensory room
You can visit their website here: http://www.facefilton.org.uk/
Please help me raise my goal of £500 for this great charity and also to FACE my fear of falling.
Thank you for your time and God bless.
