On Sunday 8 June 2014, it is the Terrence Higgins Trust’s Walk for Life, a fundraiser for its Hardship Fund.

Walk for Life is the Terrence Higgins Trust's annual 10km sponsored walk around Central London. All funds raised from Walk for Life go towards its Hardship Fund, which provides vital grants for people living with HIV in severe financial need.

The Hardship Fund offers invaluable support to some of the most vulnerable people with HIV, allowing them to afford basic necessities like warm clothing, healthy food and the fare to get to the hospital - helping them to keep their dignity and stay healthy despite severe financial difficulties.

This is the 25th year Walk for Life has been running and it will be the 6th year I am doing the Walk. Every year there is a fancy dress theme and this year the theme is "Heroes, Heroines and Villains".

When I was a little girl I always wanted to be a Witch when I grew up, so I will be realising my childhood ambition and doing the Walk as a Witch!

I choose to do the Walk for Life every year because it is for a cause that is special to me and is very close to my heart. This year the Walk will mean even more to me as I have been volunteering with the Terrence Higgins Trust for the past 8 months.

I know it is the Age of Austerity and money is tight, but if you are able to please consider sponsoring me - the money is going to a really good cause and to people who are facing real hardship and are in real need.
