Thanks for visiting my charity funding page.
I'm raising money for Tourettes Action.
Tourettes Action works in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and is the leading support and research charity for people with Tourette Syndrome (TS) and their families. They want people with TS to receive the practical support and social acceptance they need to help them live their lives to the full.
It is run by a small team of dedicated staff and an experienced board of trustees who have worked with Tourette Syndrome and disability organisations. The charity is based in their Camberley office, but many of the team work around the country supporting people with TS.
Tourettes Action receives no government funding and relies entirely on voluntary contributions!
I will be doing a freefall tandem skydive at 10,000 feet, dropping at over 120mph with Skyline based in Maidstone, one of over twenty British Parachute Association's approved across the UK.
If I raise the minimum donation target, Skyline will let me skydive for FREE! I will be funding my own skydive, unless I hit the target.
If I raise £500.00 over my minimum donation target, I will be posting pictures and a video clip of myself screaming my head off during the 10,000 ft fall!
All donations will be quickly processed and passed to my charity.
My stunt will be held on Saturday, May 31st 2014
What is Tourette Syndrome?
Tourette Syndrome is an inherited, neurological condition, the key features of which are tics, involuntary and uncontrollable sounds and movements. TS is a complex condition and covers a wide spectrum of symptoms and associated behaviours, including OCD and ADHD. Only 10 per cent of people with TS swear. Each person with TS has different tics and will experience diverse symptoms.
There is no cure for TS, but there are various treatments available including medication and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
