Free Falling

It’s that time of year where i think about what charity event i want to do. I usually like to only ask for one event a year where i ask for sponsorship as i feel that people are reluctant to sponsor multiple events.

The past two years i have done the 8 mile walk that is part of the Belfast Marathon. I kind of fancied something different this year and i’ve kind of been and done the marathon walk twice now. I have done the walk with Ushi both times, but i am not sure how long she would want to walk that far. She is still fit and working well, but baring in mind her age, i’m not sure if she would do another 8 miles in one go.

I’ve decided that on the 20th March 2016, i shall be abseiling off the Europa hotel in Belfast. I will be doing it for
Angel Eyes NI
Along with a couple of others. We are all doing it for Angel Eyes NI. A company called
The Belfast activity centre
Will be the ones supervising the abseil and providing the equipment needed and such. I have done things like artifficial caving which was great craic, so i know the activity centre will have us in safe hands.

So, if anyone would like to sponsor me, you can
Visit my just giving page
Or text The code “EUAB69” followed by a space and your amount to 70070. You can donate anything from £1 up to £10 on the Just text gicing.

Thank you in advance for your support. I’m wondering what i am letting myself in for 🙂

Manchester Dogs Home Fire

When i read about this on Thursday night, I was utterly shocked. What would make someone think to set fire to a dogs home. Apparently at least 60 dogs were killed in the fire, and many more badly injured. A lot of rescues near by have had to take in some of the dogs who have survived. This will probably have a knock on effect as resources in these places are stretched enough as it is.

The manchester evening news have set up a just giving page and the donations have just been pouring in.

Here is a more detailed article from
The house of dog
Or @Thehouseofdog on twitter.

I tried to post the main article but i can’t find a way to share it directly with my blog. The house of dog article is
And it gives details of how you can donate anything you can and spread the word. My heart goes out to all the people involved in the rescue and who are still helping these poor poor dogs.

I don’t normally post this kind of thing, and sorry it is a bit disjointed, but please please help if you can. Every little helps as they say. Some people can be so very cruel :(.
