Over the last week of May, I’m going to be rowing 7 marathons in 7 days on an indoor rowing machine, for a total mileage of almost 300,000m! I’ve never actually sat on a rowing machine for more than 90 minutes at a time so doing it for around 5 hours a day is definitely going to be a challenge, but I’ve gotta put myself through some genuine pain or it wouldn’t be worth your while donating! I’ll be keeping everyone updated along the way, butt chafe and all! 

Volunteering with Basis Yorkshire over the last 2 years has been the best thing I’ve ever done. It has completely changed my life and hopefully helped me to change the lives of others. I’ve seen first hand the difference that any funding can make to a smaller charity like Basis and it’s work with vulnerable women is especially important at this difficult time.

Basis Yorkshire empowers women and young people to stay safe and make positive choices. We are a specialist voluntary orgnaisation that works specifically with sexworkers (indoor and streetbased ) in Leeds and with young people who are being sexually exploited or who have experienced this in the past across Yorskhire.
