Rhodes Minnis Cat Sanctuary - Lisette's Challenges

Event dates: 1st January 2013 – 4th March 2014

Lisette Patching is raising money for The Rhodes Minnis Cat Sanctuary

My story

Thank you to everyone who supported me through my challenges last year and to everyone who has donated. I did the dip on Boxing Day and have the video to prove it. It was cold but not as cold as I thought it would be and I was fortified by some Honey Jack Daniels after. Karen, Esther, Patrick, Patrick's mum and dad and Christopher from the cat sanctuary came along to watch. The worst part was getting out of the sea as I was very cold then and I was on shingle so it wasn't very easy.

I completed 10 of my challenges but am very disappointed that I haven't been able to master the juggling or the unicycle. I will persevere with them and am also continuing with my riding lessons. I have done some great things and some difficult things and am really glad that I did this and raising all the money that I have has made it all worthwhile. So far I have raised £485 for the cats and would really like to achieve £500 if I can. The fundraising page will be open until the end of January for anyone who would still like to sponsor me.

The links to all the video clips are below.
