My story

[p]I am currently working in a part-time interim role for a wonderful charity called Shine in Peterborough. Shine provides specialist support pre birth and beyond for anyone living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. These are very complex conditions that affect moving, learning and health.[/p][p]On Friday 18th May I will be putting my money (hopefully your money actually) where my mouth is and taking part in an abseil - 150ft down Peterborough Cathedral. Not only that, I will be doing it dressed as Benny Bear, one of Shine's mascots. It is a long, long way up (or down depending how you look at it), and apparently, even on a good day, the top of the tower gets pretty blustery. I can't say I'm filled with joy at the prospect, more a low level anxiety at the moment, and that's just dressing up as a giant bear... [/p][p]Will you sponsor me and help me beat my target - given what I do it would be embarrassing to fail. I'll try not to let you down![/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
