    We are super proud to introduce you to our Abseil Team:

    George Griffiths

    George is an old friend of Madissa’s Family and is an experienced fundraiser. He helped Metoo ( now skylarks ) by tossing the coin at Wimbledon . He took part in the Rickshaw challenge raising a huge amount for BBC Children in Need . George also wrote and directed a musical that raised money for the Down’s syndrome Association. He is excited to rise ( literally ) to the challenge of abseiling the tower for inclusion to raise funds for Toucan Diversity .

    Parissa & Anne-Marie Asgari

    We are so scared! We have been working hard on our fitness over the last few months to get ready to step over the edge and abseil this iconic building in Portsmouth.

    We miss Madissa and don't know how we are getting through the days but we do, one day at a time. It is for you, Madissa that we will conquer our fear of heights so that we can keep your legacy going. We love you!

    Tom Silver

    Tom is one of our accredited trainers delivering 'Autism Awareness'. We are so grateful that Tom is doing this Abseil for Inclusion for Toucan Diversity. He has worked with Madissa from the very beginning of her setting up the social enterprise.

    Dr Mereille Nemeh

    I met the beautiful Madissa 15 years ago when she welcomed me to MeToo and Co (now Skylarks) with a beautiful smile. I will never forget her spirit and warmth. She was one of the main motivations for forming Skylarks to provide sanctuary for parents with children with special needs.

    I did the abseil once before for Skylarks and Toucan and was happy to help such wonderful organisations.

    Doing this again now to continue Madissa’s legacy and to remember the contribution she made to the inclusiveness agenda in the UK through the diversity training services of Toucan, a social enterprise she founded.
