Face your Fears Challenge

We have enlisted our Directors to take part in a Face your Fears Fundraiser Challenge. Five Directors are all signed up to take part in a challenge on Thursday 13th October 2016 that can only be described as their worst nightmare and all for a good cause. This fundraising event has been set up to raise money for Piam Brown Ward,  the regional Paediatric Cancer unit based in Southampton General Hospital.

Our Face your Fears Fundraising challenge will see two of our five directors take on everything that slithers or crawls in the Snakes Alive, interactive reptile experience. The remaining three, well, we’re sending them Up the O2,  on a walkway suspended 52 meters above ground level.

Here’s your chance to meet our challengers:

Ben Richardson – Trading Director

“Heights is the one for me. Strap me to a bungee cord or to someone skydiving and I am fine. But make me walk up and over a huge building with just a little strap on harness and I am quivering wreck, weird I know. The fear of not being secure and then slipping and falling is what freaks me out. Sweaty palms at the ready!”

“The perks of being a Director at Helistrat – you get signed up to Face Your Fears Challenge. All joking aside, it is a great cause. We are raising money for our charity Piam Brown Ward. I didn’t, at the time of signing up, realise the challenge would be to hold the thing I’m most scared of. And that’s snakes and spiders. I hate them.”

“I am not good with heights. I have suffered with vertigo and problems with my balance in the past which has resulted in anything more than a flight of stairs terrifying me. When I heard about this fundraiser challenge I was up for attempting to overcome this fear.”

“It’s typical, isn’t it? One day at work you happen to mention in passing that you’re terrified of heights. You then get coerced, sorry I mean signed up to a Fear Factor Fundraiser Challenge in aid of our nominated charity Piam Brown Ward.”

Peter Ruggiero – Commercial Director

“I hate spiders and snakes. They make my skin crawl. It stemmed from an encounter a long time ago at Victoria Train Station where I got close and personal with my nemesis – a snake. I even have photographic evidence to prove it. At the time that was it, I said never again. But here I am signing myself up to do it again.”

As Directors are all a bit competitive, we thought to add a twist to the challenge we would add in a get-out clause. The person who raises the most money won’t have to go ahead with their challenge – instead they will watch with delight as the other four go through with theirs!
