Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Tattoo? Bungee Jump? The usual ideas come rolling out when you hit a milestone. I wanted to celebrate a little differently, do something memorable and unique, and better still, support a good cause at the same time!
After watching BBCs Inside Out showing Skin Needling to release the tension of soldiers' scar tissue (Skin of course being my passion!!) I felt drawn towards getting involved. Who better to give back to than servicemen and women who have already given so much!? A glimpse of the Help for Heroes website and it all fell into place...
A NIGHT TIME TREK OF BEN NEVIS!
I am climbing Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Scotland (and the British Isles!) overnight on Saturday 18th August, raising support for the Help for Heroes Charity.
Don't panic! I'm with an organised group! We'll be setting off from Fort William after sunset to reach the summit in time for sunrise – illuminated only by the light of our torches, and of the moon and the stars.
I don't know anyone else on the climb yet - there's fundraisers like myself from across the country, and veterans and service personnel who have suffered a permanently life-changing or career ending injury or illness. I think it is a truly inspiring event.
Now... I'm a busy person, but we're talking performing skin treatments, admin, school runs and housework - this event will be a challenge for me. And to match that, I've set myself an ambitious donation target too.
I hope you embrace my challenge, and I am grateful for and touched by your donations. Thank you to those that contributed towards my costs for this event, that page has now closed.
And of course if you're inspired by the event and want to challenge yourself for an amazing cause, come and join me! I'd love someone to carry my bag!! (That is a joke!!)
Thank you again for your support.
