This October I turn 50. I had planned to celebrate this special birthday with a trip to Zambia to see my childhood friend, but circumstances have changed, to put it mildly. Instead, on the 17th of October, my sister, Rebecca, and I will be abseiling 80 meters down the ArcelorMittal Orbit in aid of the Orpheus Centre, where I work. Please use this page to sponsor me!

As you may already know the Orpheus Centre is an independent specialist college in Surrey that specialises in performing and visual arts and makes dramatic improvements to young disabled adults’ lives. Everything at Orpheus is focused on maximising lasting independence and quality of life for our students.

If you sponsor me for this challenge your donation will go towards enabling more young disabled adults to live and learn independently.

Thank you for helping to make this a special birthday!
