Wedding dress walk!

168% Raised

12th May 2020 is our 8th wedding anniversary and given the current lock down I've decided for a bit of fun to wear my wedding dress to celebrate. However, during this time of isolation I have appreciated my safe and supportive family home and cannot bear the thought of those in unsafe situations. I feel there is little I can do personally but I would like to support those who can like Leeds Women's Aid. 

So for every £1 you sponsor me I will walk a meter outside (as part of my daily exercise allowance) in my massive wedding dress! I really do not enjoy making a show of myself and will find this embarrassing as will my poor family - but the more you sponsor the further I will walk!

Leeds Women's Aid work to help women and children leave situations of violence and abuse. There is little we can do from our homes during lockdown to help but looking foolish and donating online to resource Leeds Women's Aid we can do.
