Story

For 1 1/2 days, or 36 hours, or 2160 minutes I am going to attempt to remain silent- not a word, hum or song is allowed! For those who know me you'll realise just how difficult this is. 

It is all in aid of the Women's Fund for Scotland which provides grants to local groups all across Scotland focusing on projects that cover four investment themes: building skills and confidence; improving health and well-being; building social networks and allowing women to move on from violence. The grants can range from around £1,000 to £5,000 and my aim is to raise at least £1,000, enough to fund one of the smaller grants that are awarded. The Women's Fund was also established in part by my mum, Marian, who was one of the most inspirational people I will ever know. 


It is certainly going to be a challenge but to make it even more exciting If you donate over £15 you'll have the option to Skype me and check my progress, over £20 & you can 'wind me up' on Skype/Facetime... (5 minutes max!!) 


When? 16.4.17- 2000 to 18.4.17- 0800

I can't blog during the day but I'll get friends and family to update you on the progress!
