    Story

    In honour of Scoliosis Awareness Month in June, my titanium spine and I will be abseiling down the Spinnaker tower to raise money for the Scoliosis Campaign Fund (SCF) - a joint fundraising organisation between the Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK) and the British Scoliosis Research Foundation (BSRF). I will be doing it on the 23rd of June at 4 o'clock, and although this will be a real challenge for me, I am incredibly excited and proud to be raising money for such a worthy cause so close to my heart.

    For those that don't know, Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that often causes extreme pain, reduced flexibility, and significant self esteem issues due to the visible abnormalities caused by the condition. It is fairly common - around 4 in every 100 people have Scoliosis. Treatment ranges from physiotherapy, to back braces, to surgery. I suffered from severe Scoliosis in my young teenage years, and had the corrective surgery when I was age 13. I have experienced the struggles that this condition causes, and want to raise as much money as possible for SAUK which supports people with Scoliosis, and BSRF which funds research into Scoliosis causes and treatment.

    Any possible donations will be greatly appreciated, and it would be amazing if you get a chance to share my link with friends or family who would like to donate too. Thank you!

      Yesterday at 9 in the morning I finally did my abseil! It was absolutely terrifying but so worth it for a great cause. Thank you for all the support and donations!

      Unfortunately, due to wind and delays of abseilers before me, I was unable to complete my abseil today. However, I will still be doing it and have rescheduled for 21st of July at 8.30 in the morning. I appreciate all the support and donations so far, thank you!
