Story

Hey, Robin here! Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. You're a busy person so I'll keep things short and sweet.

On the 22nd of June I'm going to throw myself off the London Air Ambulance helipad. Sounds fun right? Well, it's 17 stories skyward, which is about 56 metres, which is pretty bloody high. If that's not scary enough, there are no walls to hold onto. That's right, I'll be hanging freely with arms and legs flailing as I make my terrifying journey towards the ground. Did I mention that I'm afraid of heights? And that's even with solid ground and railings to hold on to!

So why am I doing this? Simply, why not. This is my first charity event and I fully support the service London's Air Ambulance provides. They're trying to buy a new helicopter and your donation will help that happen, helping save more lives in London. Your money will also be used to support the day-to-day activities and materials needed to keep things running smoothly.

Please donate as much as you can. Any amount will help reach the goal! I'll make sure to document my day and, purely for your amusement, get as many photos of me looking absolutely terrified as I hang 17 stories above the ground.
