Hello!
I will be attempting to beat my vertigo while shimmying ungracefully Bridget Jones-stylee down the ArcelorMittal Orbit on July 16. 
It's the UK's tallest free-fall abseil at 262ft and I will be absolutely terrified. But meeting the incredibly brave heart and lung disease patients at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals makes me think it's the least I can do to help them in some small way through the Patients' Fund. You can read more about the Patients' Fund here but, essentially, it aims to enhance the lives of people in hospital through small projects. Examples include iPods to aid memory and reduce stress and anxiety for dementia patients or camp beds on Rose Ward, to allow parents of very sick children a good night's rest at their child's bedside. 
Anything you can give in sponsorship of my abseil would be greatly appreciated, as I have seen first hand what good little gifts can do for a patient with a horrible lung or heart disease. 
Thank you so much!
