Anna writes "I recently had the opportunity to paraglide, and
as we know Covid has brought to our city a stand still towards my 4
charities: Anthony Walker Foundation, Amadudu, LCR Pride, and
Merseyside Somali Association. So I took a leap of faith in order
to raise funds for my charities, after having to cancel all of my
scheduled fundraisers consisting of supper clubs, The Lord Mayors
lunch and The Lord Mayors annual ball. It is painfully obvious the
funds raised this year will be limited, however, the work my
charities do within the Liverpool community is crucial from
supporting women and children fleeing domestic violence to
supporting our young LGBT community deal with life's challenges.
The charities do crucial work in the city and often life saving
provision is put in place for their benefactors.
Please see the YouTube link and support me to support the
many people who access these services and donate whatever you can
afford. Our city knows how to come together in a crisis and I'm so
proud of the support I have received to date and thank you from the
bottom of my heart."
