Challenge Gibraltar

Paul Smith

My page:

Thank you for visiting Paul’s fundraising page in aid of Save the Children (Gibraltar) and Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital. In April 2015 Paul will push himself in his wheelchair to the top of Gibraltar Rock to hopefully raise £100,000 for the two very worthwhile charities.

Paul has a head injury with several physical injuries due to a car accident in 1991, since he was able to Paul has concentrated most of his time raising funds for children’s charities around the world, raising an amazing £2.1 million pounds to date. Despite his own difficulties Paul has never sought sympathy, he has always thought that there are many more people in this world who are worse off then he is.

Paul has taken on 8 challenges in his wheelchair, including pushing himself 325 miles from Plymouth UK to London UK this took 5 and a half days leaving him remarkable fresh at the end of it while the rest of us were very tired.

Please help Paul reach his £100,000 target by making a donation of whatever you can afford, children in Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital are seriously ill and there are many more around the world who really need our help! Thank you.
