    Story

    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!

      Thank you to everybody that that has supported me on this experience. It has currently been one of the most gruelling events of my life, and all I can say is what an adventure! The money we've raised "Together" will go towards the £30,000 target and will help change lives. I will update you all on the final total once it has been calculated.

      Yesterday was the day I took on the Fan Dance challenge and despite my groups guide taking us on a 1-hour detour across the wrong mountain, I still managed to cover 25 km in just over 5 hours! At times there was zero visibility, blizzards, snow up to my thighs and what felt like 80 miles an hour winds. I had feelings of rapture and moments when I didn't think I'd be able to go on. But through it all - the cold, the heat, and the punishing terrain; there was an overwhelming drive to succeed.
