Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Donation through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure.

I'm on a mission to help people to live their best life and part of this goal is to raise money for Women for Women, which supports the health of women and unborn children by providing research and scientist support into illnesses and disorders.

Please help me to reach my target and dig deep now. There will be lots of opportunities for you to support me and have fun at the same time.

On 1 September 2012, I jumped out of a plane, on 6 September 2012 I ran the charity event, Breakthrough to Success, and on 3 and 4 November, I ran the Star Biz conference 2012 where part of the profits and auction will support the charity (we raised £904 with the auction alone!) I continued to raise much needing funds with more events including an 80's themed disco and Star Biz 2013 raising £1000.

To get my fitness up, I've been walking regularly and working with a personal trainer at the gym.  I will be completing 100 miles along the South Downs Way from Eastbourne to Winchester on 17-24 August 2013.

It ends with a trek to Machu Picchu (the Inca Trail) in September 2013 with 20 other amazing ladies raising £75k for the charity.

Not far off the target now and about to walk The South Downs Way starting Saturday!
