My story

[p]Fact - rats are the worst animal ever.[/p][p]They absolutely terrify me and the thought of holding one makes me feel physically sick.[/p][p]So I'm not overly impressed that my wonderful team at work thought it was a great idea to rope me in to a Face Your Fears Challenge that involves doing exactly that![/p][p]And not just any rat but a giant rat. With a great big long tail and bitey, chompy teeth.[/p][p]This year, Virgin Balloon Flights is raising money for the British Lung Foundation as our chosen charity.[/p][p]But if I manage to raise the most, those same lovely colleagues who talked me into this will each have to hold the animal they're most scared of - but I won't![/p][p]So go on, hit the donate button so we can not only raise lots of money for a brilliant cause but so I can raise the most money and laugh at the rest of them when they realise they're doing the challenge and I'm not![/p][p]Thanks so much![/p]
