May/June 2020: 2.6 Challenge
I raised £500 for NHS Charities together by completing 26 hours of rigorous exercise (weightlifting, sit ups and boxing) over 26 days. My journey is documented here.
21st May 2018: London Legal Walk
I walked with Monckton Chambers to raise £1,040.00 for the London Legal Support Trust, the Free Representation Unit and the Bar Pro Bono Unit who help people access legal help.
J3rd September 2018: Parallel London
I raised £150 for Disability Rights UK by participating in Parallel London 2018 to help the charity to continue helping disabled people to have career opportunities through breaking down barriers in education and work. Disability Rights UK will also carry on supporting independent living and fight negative attitudes towards and perceptions of disabled people.
I raised £150 for Ability Bow so that it can continue aiding the rehabilitation of disabled people and people with health conditions, despite heavy cuts to funding.
4th September 2016: Parallel London
I raised £355 by participating in Parallel London 2016 to help Disability Rights UK keep helping disabled people to have career opportunities through breaking down barriers in education and work. Disability Rights UK will also carry on supporting independent living and fight negative attitudes towards and perceptions of disabled people.
8th May 2016: Stonewall Equality Walk
I raised £165.63 by participating in Stonewall's Equality Walk 2016 to help Stonewall send even more role models into schools to inspire young people right across the country. Every year, thousands of LGBT+ young people grow up feeling isolated and alone just because of who they are. Last year, Stonewall sent more than 50 LGBT role models to visit schools across the UK to share their personal stories with thousands of students and teachers. This is obviously very important as no young person should feel secluded and alone. Young people also need inspiration in order to achieve their dreams. They also need hope that they can have success despite the LGBT+ discrimination and bullying. Just knowing that they are not alone can make a big difference.
I also raised £185 for Step Forward, a local charity of which I'm deeply fond as it has helped me and several friends. It provides a safe and welcoming space for young people to talk and get the support they need, when they need it. The services are free, confidential, accessible to all and continually evolving to ensure they are always relevant and responsive.
The Step Out Project at Step Forward is a free and confidential fun and dynamic service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered young people and those questioning their sexual and/or gender identity.Step Out provides a friendly and safe space for LGBTQ young people to explore, learn, discuss and socialise. Access to 1-2-1 support is also available.
November 2012: Movember
I raised £100 by participating in Movember, an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of various cancers, such as prostate cancer.
