I have been climbing for 2 years and have reached national No 1 in my category and hold the national Champion title. However, budgets from the BMC are not sufficient.
I want to be in a position to be able to commit to the competitions in 2019 but need the funds to be able to cover travel, accommodation and food.
30% of people who have a stroke will go on to experience another stroke. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability in the UK. There are around 32,000 stroke-related deaths in England each year.
I had a stroke at age 21 when I was at university. After long hard rehabilitation I started climbing I have never turned back since.
On top of my stroke I also suffered from spinal nerve damage, which means I can no longer feel my face and I am going blind. That damage is irreparable
