My Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

On Friday 20 May 2022, I will be taking part in a skydive to raise money for Glass Door Homeless Charity.

The skydive will see me fly from over 10,000ft at up to 120mph, all to raise money for Glass Door, a Chelsea-based charity which co-ordinates the UK’s largest network of open-access shelter and support services for people affected by homelessness.

I am honoured to be partnering with Glass Door for a second Mayoral term to raise awareness and funds for the work they do supporting people experiencing homelessness in the borough and across London.

All donations are hugely appreciated. Thank you in advance and please feel free to share this page with anyone who may like to donate.

About Glass Door

Glass Door are committed to helping people to get – and stay – off the street through an offering that combines emergency winter shelters and year-round access to support from caseworkers who provide their guests with support to move beyond homelessness.

Glass Door's vision is a world where no one has to sleep on the streets of London. By partnering with churches and community centres to provide shelter and support, Glass Door is committed to supporting people get—and stay—off the street.

They believe everyone has inherent dignity and welcome those who turn to them as their guests.

Year-round, people find advice and support to end their homelessness through trained caseworkers based at partnering drop-in centres.

Glass Door are open to all, space permitting. They do not require guests to fill in long, complicated forms or prove they have a local connection to gain access to our services.

As an independent charity that receives no funding that impedes their open access policy, it is thanks to the support of individuals, partners, churches, community groups, businesses and trusts and foundations that they can continue to provide shelter and support to those who need it most.
