Weʼre raising £200 to Help Bristol's Homeless by doing the Fan Dance Challenge.
- Brecon Beacons South Wales
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
For those who know me and have seen my dancing will know that this is not a dance competition!
The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km SAS Selection test march staged over Pen y Fan. The infamous march is the world’s oldest Special Forces test and is the first significant indicator of whether a candidate has the physical and mental aptitude to complete the legendary selection course.
Founded, organised and managed by veteran SAS & SBS soldiers, the Fan Dance ethos is one of integrity and the unrelenting pursuit of excellence.
Staged across the spectacular scenery of the Brecon Beacons, the Fan Dance remains a formidable challenge that demands unwavering respect for tradition and authenticity.
On the 6th of April 2019, in association with Force Fitness, I will be taking on this challenge in aid of Help Bristol's Homeless (HBH). The aim is to help raise £30,000 that can be used to convert two shipping containers into living accommodation.
I have been working with HBH for almost two years, and as most of you are aware of the work they are doing is something that is close to my heart.
After being homeless myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right help and support. HBH is different from other charities as their ethos is that housing must come first. Through working with HBH I have seen how this approach works, and I've witnessed people turn their lives around once they have the stable foundation that HBH is offering.
I will be one of many taking on this extraordinary challenge, and I am asking my friends and family to sponsor me so that together we can raise £200 towards the HBH target.
I'm not one to shy away from a challenge; however, I know that this separates the wheat from the chaff and will no doubt be the greatest challenge of my life.
Please join me on this life-changing experience for a life-changing cause by donating today.
Thank you for your support, and in the words of Jasper Thompson founder of Help Bristol's Homeless - Together, we can make a difference!

I've been doing some hill training today with my coach Hugo dog. We completed ten rounds of my hill circuit, that's almost 5 miles, and I'm pleased to say it's getting easier. My quadriceps still burn like mad, but I can feel my gluteus maximus firming up. I'll be able to bounce bullets off it by the time I'm done. P.S. I do apologise for Hugo behaviour; I keep telling him off for sticking his tongue out for the camera! 🤦♂️
