Luna's crazy abseil
Fundraising for Age UK formerly Age Concern England
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern and Help the Aged We believe that age needs respect. It needs kindness. Sometimes it needs help. Too many people experience difficulties as they age. We cannot promise everyone good health, but we will fight for good care for all of us. Where we find loneliness, we will reach out. When age becomes a burden, we will try to lighten the load. Age UK will campaign. We will fundraise. We will research. We will make the powers that be listen. We will do all this to make life better for older people here and abroad. Age UK is for all of us, because age is a part of life.

I did it! Thanks to all of your support (if you had already sponsored me) I was confident enough to walk across the roof of a very tall building and abseil down. It was incredibly scary at the top, but the fear quickly turned into enjoyment and I had the time of my life. I even managed to do a couple of James bond style jumps! Please do still spread the word as I would very much like to raise at least £400, but for those of you who have already sponsored me, THANK you very much. It means a lot to both me and age concern. I have lots more photos and a couple of video clips so if you want to see those, please send me an email at

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.
I am terrified of heights, but am going to abseil down a 170 foot (approx 52 metres) building on Sunday, 18th June. (AXA Building, in Coventry, at 11:30 am). Please do support me by sponsoring me, and by spreading the word. As this is no easy feat for me, the more sponsors I get (and the more money I raise) the more confident I will feel about it all, so your contribution really does count!
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Age Concern England will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.
If you are free on the day, and live in the area, then please feel free to come along and watch and cheer :-) I will keep an eye out for you (once I have my feet planted solidly on the ground again!)
Once again, I thank you infinitely for your support, and please remember to spread the word. Its all for a fantastic cause!
