Despite being scared of heights we have Alice Goodison from Reeds Rains in Woodseats, along with her colleague Sam Edwards, who have decided to take a ‘leap of faith’ (literally) by performing a Bungee Jump in aid of Cash for Kids. The grant giving charity that Reeds Rains is once again supporting this year.
Although Alice and Sam are not taking part in the event until 19 June, both are already promoting their fundraising and encouraging sponsorship with the aim to raise at least £500 for the charity.
“We’ve been working with our Charity Manager, Allan Ogle, from Hallam FM and decided this might be a great way to raise money for Cash for Kids, although I am extremely scared of heights.
We’ll be dropping 160 feet at Sheffield Magna's Bungee Jump, enveloped in a pitch black former steel foundry, dazzled by flashing strobe lighting and deafened with booming rave music, it's going to be AWFUL, but well worth it for a truly fantastic cause. This is especially true after the dark year the world has had, it would be great to let a little light back in.
We’ve already started promoting our challenge on social media and, whilst it’s not until June, we are trying to secure donations as soon as possible so that they count towards the overall fundraising efforts of Reeds Rains, so the pressure is on! And, for all who know us, the diets have begun and so has the vertigo sickness.”
We’re sure you’ll all agree how brave Alice and Sam are for doing this and we wish them the best of luck.
