A Southport mum has dedicated a considerable amount of her spare time to raising funds for a charity close to her heart.
Riding High Challenge For Everton in the Community
Angie Booth, whose son Ollie has behavioural difficulties and plays football for one of Everton in the Community’s Disability teams, has been fundraising for the charity for over a year.
Not the most conventional of fundraisers, Angie organises a variety of challenges that not only tests her physical strength, but also her mental toughness.
With a pathological fear of heights, the 42-year-old took on three challenges in 2014 which saw her abseil, Go Ape and zip slide over Goodison Park.
Refusing to rest on her laurels and admire her accomplishments, Angie is in the middle of her next feat, cycling over 400km from Yosemite to San Francisco this coming June.
Speaking of her dedication to Everton’s official charity Angie said:
“I am not a football fan, but I support Everton in the Community. You don’t realise just how much work they do throughout the Northwest, or how many people they actually help. The diversity of their programmes is incredible.”
You can help Angie reach her Riding High fundraising target of £4000 by donating at JustGivingRidingHigh.
Alternatively, you can text donations to 70070 with message RHAB50 £ and amount.
There is also the opportunity to sponsor the shirts worn during the event with great incentives. For more details email Carena.firstname.lastname@example.org
