Story

I would like to tell you all about a client of mine and now great friend Gill Jenkins.

This woman is amazing, one of the kindests, sweetest, happiest young ladies I have ever met.

Gill has lost an unbelievable 14 stone, no surgery, no drugs just sheer hard work and determination.

i don't want to give a huge sob story but I would like you to know how difficult the journey has been, this women work ethic is nothing short of extraordinary, she's gone from not being able to walk down the street without getting out of breathe to compelling 10k Invinsible Obstacle courses.

What this woman has achieved is amaizing every pound sweated out over months and years of dedication and persistence.

Unfortunately with such weight loss in later years having adverse effects on skin collegen Gill's achievement has come with great sacrafise with her now sagging skin issue and although she's over the moon with her new body I know deep down it's way short of what she deserves.

And that's where you guys come in, I want to start fundraising for Gill there is an operation available for 10- £15,000 that Gill does not qualify on the NHS for as she is not left clinically depressed by the problem, but I know Gill even if she was she would smile through it and tell everyone things where all happy days, that's why she deserves this, more than anyone I know she deserves something amazing to happen and I know she would never ever forget our help in getting her exactly where she deserves to be in a normal ladies body, not perfect, not without scars but just

I was inspired to write this just giving Page by a show I saw on ITV last night called Lisa Rileys Baggy Body, I suggest you all watch it, was amazing it really hit home to me exactly how this issue would effect you life, I had never seen things through Gill's eyes before and it was an insight into how the transformation effects her life still today.

I will be planning challenges, getting teams together for challenges and getting friends and family's help and support to fund this operation and whatever you guys can give is greatly appreciated, if everyone on my friends list gave £5 we'd smash this target.

This is what charity is all about guy, effecting someone close to you or your friends life for the better, that's real charity to me.

Thanks for your help with this guys.

Forever appreciated 👊
