Back in 2007, I became a wish visitor for the Make A Wish Foundation.
It’s a charity that grants magical wishes for children, aged between 3 and 17 years, fighting life-threatening conditions. As a wish visitor, it’s my job to go out and meet the children and their families to find out what their wishes are. Occasionally, I get the opportunity to help on the wish day, which is such a privilege. To see the pure joy it brings to the whole family is incredible. Just for one day,2 mile they get to be ‘normal’; to see their son or daughter smile and forget about what they have to deal with on a day to day basis.

- Bungee jump

- 300-mile bike ride in 24 hours (Newcastle to London)
- 100km walk in 24 hours

Below are just some of the charities I’ve helped.
