We have seen in the past what Barbara will do for Tulips when she had her hair transformed into many different colours. Personally I thought it looked lovely.
Since then Barbara has battled with cancer and is now on the road to recovery and has decided to put herself up for a personal challenge, again to raise much needed funds for Tulips. She is one brave lady and deserves a lot of support in this major feat so if you can sponsor her she will be eternally grateful for whatever you can afford.
” As many of you are aware I have been very quiet over the past 18 months due to illness, thankfully with the support of my husband, family, friends, doctors/oncologist and Tulips (Help those with Cancer) I am on the road to recovery and hopefully raising lots of money for my favourite charity TULIPS who are in desperate need of funds.
As all those who know me are aware I am terrified of heights, so badly that there was about a 5 year period that I could not drive to Lefkosa without a panic attack and had to stop driving there. I have always sworn I would never paraglide off the mountain even for Tulips! I think I have lost my marbles, but it is with great trepidation that I have decided if I can raise enough money through sponsorship I will make that jump.
Highline Tandem Paragliding have very kindly agreed to donate a tandem paraglide to me to raise funds for Tulips, which is very generous offer and for that I thank them very much, my dear husband can cough up what it would have cost and sponsor me, thank you Kevin.
Now I need to ask for you all to please dig deep and sponsor me on this torture that I am going to endure and help to make my sacrifice worthwhile (and no I am not a drama queen).
The date has yet to be set but to ensure winds are at best it will be in September, can I ask you all to share this please so I can hopefully get as much sponsorship as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, it is much appreciated. “
