Georgie is Jumping out of plane in aid of RISE UK

On May 31st 2019 Imogen and I will be jumping 10,000 feet out of a plane in aid of RISE UK. RISE is a Sussex-based charity that supports people affected by domestic abuse and violence, RISE stands for Refuge, Information, Support and Education.
As many people are aware Lucas and I fled domestic violence from Cardiff in 2014. We were supported by multiple charities and refuges but found ourselves long term in a RISE refuse on the south coast where we finally felt safe and were able to rebuild our lives. The refuge provided us with a safe roof over our heads, food, clothes, household basics and essentials, counseling and general help and support to be able to 'start again'. Fleeing only days before Lucas 1st birthday, the refuge provided him with a birthday party and gifts, They supported us through Christmas in the same way with all of the workers always going above and beyond to support us. I met many life friends in the refuge, people from all backgrounds with and without children going through the same situation. They help children back into education, securing places in schools and helping with books and uniforms.
Leaving a home you have created is difficult for anyone and many women are left with no choice but to leave it all behind just in order to be safe, RISE offers round the clock support to both Men and Women in need or at risk of domestic violence. RISE educates those affected by domestic violence to support a healthy and happy future, and to allow these people to move on.
Please help me reach my goal by making a donation no matter how big or small to continue this on going amazing work that saves the lives of so many.
