My story

[p]"If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity and you don't think you can do it, say yes and learn how to do it later" - Richard Branson [/p][p]I was offered the amazing opportunity of joining other Wooden spoon supporters to tackle Mount Everest and hopefully set two new Guinness world records whilst raising over £200,000 for this fantastic charity.[/p][p]We aim to play the;[/p][p]Highest altitude game of full contact rugby (6,650m)- single gender sevens match[/p][p]Highest altitude game of touch rugby at Advanced Base Camp around (6,340m)- mixed gender sevensmatch[/p][p]The Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. It funds life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage.[/p][p]Their vision is that every child and young person, no matter what their background, has access to the same opportunities.[/p][p]They fund a range of projects including sensory rooms and gardens, playgrounds and outdoor activities, education projects, specialist equipment and facilities and health and wellbeing programmes.[/p][p]So I've said YES and now I'm learning HOW - I started playing rugby and learning to tackle last year at the age of 42, what next but to tackle EVEREST! I've had many challenges in life, good and bad and I can't think of a better reason to give back and play a small part in helping less able bodied and disadvantaged children.[/p][p]Any assistance you can spare with my HOW would be amazing - whether a few pennies, pounds, encouragement, tips ('don't do it' doesn't count) clothing, sponsorship would all be gratefully received![/p][p]With immense gratitude[/p][p]Jude x[/p][p]'she believed she could - so she did!'[/p]

But can you eat a whole doughnut without licking your lips? I would love to see you in person after you have smashed it to have a glass or 3 to congratulate you. Best of luck! GP
