My story

[p]It's typical, isn't it?[/p][p]One day at work you happen to mention in passing that you're really frightened of snakes.[/p][p]Months down the line, your wonderful colleagues haven't forgotten and you somehow get talked into joining the office Face Your Fears Challenge in aid of the British Lung Foundation.[/p][p]Snakes absolutely petrify me. Up until I was convinced to take part in this fundraiser, there is no way I would even be in the same room as a snake. Now I find myself faced with having to actually hold one.[/p][p]To be honest, the only reason I was convinced to do it is because it was for such a great charity. One in five poeple in the UK suffer from some form of lung disease and the British Lung Foundation does such wonderful work to fund both support and research into cures and treatments.[/p][p]There is still a chance I could get out of this and luckily, that way also involves me raising the most money. If I can get more donations than any of my colleagues, I'll be let off having to face my fear while all the others will have to go through with theirs.[/p][p]So if you can spare a bit of money to sponsor me, it would be very gratefully received indeed![/p][p]Thank you for visiting and and even bigger thank you to all those who donate to save me from a close encounter with my reptile nightmare![/p]
