    Story

    My name is Harry Gibson, I'm an international hockey goalkeeper for England and Great Britain.

    Sadly, my Grandma passed away a couple of weeks ago, and I'd like to raise money for the care home where she spent the final years of her life. Care homes around the country have been majorly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I want to do what I can to make sure they can get through these tough times as safely as possible.

    Care-workers work incredibly hard to care for our loved ones, working long hours for a modest wage and usually very little recognition. This is especially honourable during this pandemic, as care-workers are literally risking their lives to care for those who need it most.

    It's very common for NHS staff and care-workers to work 12 hour shifts on the front line, especially during this pandemic. I have decided to honour this by working my own 12 hour shift, doing the closest thing to hockey goalkeeping that I can given the circumstances.

    As such, on the 29th of April, I'm going to be throwing a ball against a Crazycatch rebound net and then catching it, as many times as possible during a 12 hour period. 

    This is how I replicate goalkeeper training whilst at home during lockdown, so it seems the most appropriate thing to do. I've estimated I'll be looking at between 14,000 and 18,000 catches depending on the pace I can maintain and breaks needed. 

    I am partnering with CrazyCatch for this event, and I am hoping through the power of social media we will be able to let people at home join me on my catching marathon, joining in alongside in solidarity for our brilliant care-workers around the country.

    I would be extremely grateful for any donations towards my cause, and although I'm sure it's going to be a long and gruelling 12 hours, in reality it is nothing compared to what our NHS Staff and care givers around the country have experienced during this pandemic, so lets give back to them what we can.

    Thanks,

    Harry Gibson

      Hey everyone, Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far! It means so much to me and the care homes who will benefit, so thank you! Secondly, I am going to move the challenge to this Friday. The reason for this is the weather. Although I really don't mind standing in the rain for 12 hours for your entertainment, we have had a lot of requests for people to join in and support me by doing their own catching in their garden, and I don't want them to have to get wet in order to do it! Thanks, Harry G.
