What does the partnership mean to you?

I suppose it’s giving something back and raising awareness, who would believe that in today’s society! Zoe’s Place requires a minimum of £1.4m annually to continue to provide palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and they are required to obtain this purely via donations. Why wouldn’t you want to help…

How have you fundraised?

Over the last 3 years I have managed to raised about £6,000 for Zoe's Place baby hospice in Coventry by completing a tandem skydive, a trek up Mount Snowdon and then my latest activity was to complete the Mudnificient 7 alongside my 18 year old son Reis where we climbed/crawled/swam/jumped and ran across the gruelling 7k of off road running, 7 sections of relentless obstacles and an immeasurable amount of mud... Which was very challenging indeed.  I do not pretend or deny that age is catching up with me!

Would you recommend taking part in challenge events like these to your colleagues?

Too right… It’s a no brainer, you get to do things you may never have thought you would get the chance to do, whilst helping support such a worthwhile cause.

Roll on to next year’s challenge - maybe a bungee jump, who knows…
