Hi everyone,

As many of you know almost 3 years ago I lost a very special friend, Hannah King, to Meningitis. Over the last 3 years, thanks to your generous sponsorship and several street collections I have contributed nearly £2000 to Meningitis UK’s ‘Search for a Vaccine’ campaign.  

However now the time as has come to literally RAISE the stakes. 

On October 23rd I will be participating in an abseil down the Avon Gorge, a 200 ft drop, the prospect of which I am finding very daunting (to say nothing of the practice exercise, just a small 70 ft abseil). 

Please sponsor me to help raise money for this more than worthwhile cause. Any amount donated will go directly to the charity and any sum would be most appreciated. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
