Together they faced challenges, they faced their fears and they achieved something very special.

The team have almost achieved their goal of raising £3,000 for a brain injury charity. You have been incredible in support of what they have done. With only hours to go, please help me with a final push to share the campaign as widely as we can to help them reach their target!

You can still support Nick, Eva and Heather by sharing their story… and you can visit Nick’s campaign by clicking here.

      They are all very special human beings… and though I can’t share yet, what they have done for Nick today just reduced me to a blubbering wreck 🙂 Amazing women.


  4. I shan’t be complaining about my achy legs when I’m at the gym tomorrow! Inspiring 🙂

    What makes a hero?

    “Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They’re just braver five minutes longer.” –Ronald Reagan

    Please consider helping Nick–a young man who’s been living those heroic five minutes for years now–reach his fundraising goal of £3000 for a brain injury charity. They are very close and your support could make all the difference. But there are only a few hours left. Please take a look at Nick’s message and help if you can.

    It will be your five minutes too.
