Local Mum Faces Fears For Charity

Anna is raising money for Bluebell Woods Hospice

A North Derbyshire woman is raising money for charity by abseiling a building in Sheffield.

Annas son Charlie has a rare neurological condition called Complex Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia, which means he has difficulty walking and has dementia. He was diagnosed after suffering symptoms for 18 months since the age of 15.

The Iconic Owen building stands at 120 feet tall, and Anna has a fear of heights, but says she wants to show the same bravery her son has shown;

"Charlie is the bravest boy i've ever met.

"All the boys at thew Hospice are brave, they never complain. They just get on with it.

"Last night, Charlie was in pain and didn't want any medication, because he said, 'this is just my life".
