Story

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my fundraising page and reading my story.

From an early age I was diagnosed with a deteriorating eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa or RP for short which will slowly lead to blindness.

Just think about it for a moment, now close your eyes and imagine your world is plunged into complete darkness, how your life would change, having to rely on your other senses...Would you be able to adapt to a life using just sound, smell, taste and touch?

Now close your eyes again and this time cover your ears aswell and imagine a world not only in darkness but also in total silence aswell...all the simple things you take for granted which can't be done using smell or taste such as telling the time, using the telephone, listening to your favourite song or watching a classic movie,..we often forget how valuable sight and sound is to our everyday lives....it's now your chance to give to those who do not have these vital senses.

With your help I want to support the fantasic work Sense does across the UK and internationally to keep DeafBlind individuals active and independent by taking part in my first Sense charity challenge. 

Once again I will be taking to the skies, this time i will not be leaping from a plane....nope, i will be attached to the wing of one...Yes i'm WING WALKING ..10 minutes of climbs, dives, and low level flybys at speeds of up to 130mph....all in aid of DeafBlind Awareness Week.  

Thank you again for showing your support for this amazing charity and the lives it has changed for the better.
