Abseil for Donks

Event dates: 9th February 2023 – 9th June 2023

Mandy Hunter is raising money for Lucy's UK Donkey Foundation

My story

Hello, My name is Mandy and I am raising funds for Lucy's UK Donkey Foundation.

This charity raises funds in the UK that are used to run mobile veterinary clinics to help the hard working donkeys, mules and horses in Israel and the West Bank. Also to maintain a sanctuary for sick, abused and abandoned donkeys in need of treatment, protection and a safe home.

If you would like to help make this a great success by donating, the donkeys and I would be so very grateful. Of course I am aware we are living in challenging times due to the cost of living crisis so any donation (however small) would be so very much appreciated.
Please remember to check in to see my progress and read any updates

I did my Abseil yesterday! I was very nervous and despite being 22 degrees, I was really cold and had 3 layers on.........anxiety does strange things to ones body. The hardest bit was leaning back where there is a brief moment before the rope tightens. The staff were brilliant, they could see how nervous I was and they talked to me continually. The actual positioning readying to take my feet of platform went very smoothly. I did swing about a bit at first but gained control quickly. I didn't look down or indeed take in the view as I was concentrating feeding the rope through. We had to wait quite a while after being harnessed up before abseil and watched several people doing theirs. Some of them were really struggling with a controlled descent but I'm happy to say mine went very well. I can't really say I enjoyed it as I was concentrating so much, I didn't take in the atmosphere. However, the feeling of achievement was quite something. Thanks to family, friends, colleagues, customers, Joans petition network and supporters of LUKDF. You have all been so generous and supportive. THANK YOU ALL.

I will be freefall abseiling the ArchelorMittal Orbit on May 27th 2023. The UK’s highest freefall abseil at 114.5m , 262ft above the city of London with views of 20 miles on a clear day ( not that I’ll be looking). I will be making an 80m journey to the ground.
This is an enormous challenge for me as I am terrified of heights. However, I feel that if asking for sponsors then it should be something challenging and believe me….IT IS!
I am raising funds for a small charity (Lucy’s UK Donkey Foundation..Charity no. 1174959) that treats and cares for donkeys in the West Bank. These donkeys have suffered some of the most appalling abuse I have ever come across. Donkeys like poor Zachariah who has had both eyes gouged out. Donkeys that have been stoned and mutilated. Please sponsor me to help this wonderful organisation to continue its vital care and provide sanctuary for abandoned donkeys. Thank you
