There's nothing more rewarding than giving some time to a local charity and where possible utilising the skills you have to benefit them. I have enjoyed dressing up on numerous occasions to have fun, raise awareness and raise funds for worthy causes.
How I have raised money in the past
In 2015 despite a fear of heights I abseiled 128ft down Ocean House in St Leonards.
- In 2013 & 2014 I walked 10 miles under the stars in Eastbourne for Chestnut Tree House.
- In 2015 I walked 16 miles to raise money for St Michael's Hospice and Battle Lions (my story).
- In 2017 I walked 26.5 miles including over the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head to raise funds for the MacMillian Cancer Support (my story).
- In 2018 I will be walking 62 miles from London to Brighton!! For MacMillian Cancer Support (my story)
For 2 years I was a Trustee for The Sara Lee Trust. I used my skills to benefit this charity, providing my time for free. I set up their Marketing Committee,
coordinated their new CMS website, created and published the new content and introduced them to the delights of social media. I am very proud to have helped this charity to achieve a better online presence. I was sad to hand over the reins at the beginning of 2015.
