My story

[p]Hello![/p][p]When you work in fundraising, you have to practice what you preach... so I did that with my 15-year-old daughter, Elisha. From a frankly dizzying 262 feet high up in the sky (or 18 double-decker London buses stacked on top of each other). [/p][p]It was cold, wet and windy, and tough both mentally and physically - but we did it![/p][p]Why did Elisha and I do this? To help raise money for a wonderful cause - Women and Children First. The charity works in some of the poorest communities in the world to stop women and children dying in pregnancy, childbirth or the first few years of life. They do this by empowering women to overcome the many health risks that they and their children face. [/p][p]This work can reduce a woman’s chance of dying by up to 50%. More newborns live too – the risk of death reduced by 33%. To date, Women and Children First has saved over 6,000 lives - and counting. You can read more about the charity here: [url=http://www.womenandchildrenfirst.org.uk/]www.womenandchildrenfirst.org.uk[/url][/p][p]Every £5 raised could help a woman attend a group for a year, empowering her and potentially saving her life![/p][p]Please sponsor us to help save even more lives. [/p][p]Thank you for your support![/p][p]Mark and Elisha x[/p]
