My Hope interview

I was Recently interviewed for the Hope for Children
website, take a look and don't forget to check out 
the amazing work that Hope for children do with 
the link below 

HOPE is lucky to have some incredible fundraisers who work
exceptionally hard for the cause. Sarah Bishop is one such person.
She is aiming to complete 30 challenges, all to raise funds for
HOPE. People like Sarah don’t come around every day so we thought
we would conduct a question and answer session with her. Here is
what she had to say:

How did you come across HOPE?

I was looking for a charity that stood for all the things I believe in and
Hope does the most amazing work both in the UK and developing countries.

Why did you choose HOPE?

Hope really stood out for me with the work they do, I did some research in
to the charity and their projects which help poor orphaned and exploited
children all over the world and realised that it was also a local charity to me.
I think every child has the right to a decent start in life, the right to have
clean water, food in their bellies and education and to be safe with a roof
over their heads and more than anything they have the right to have hope
or a future.

Why are you doing 30 challenges?

I am doing 30 challenges as I turn 30 next year! And I thought it would be a
great way to mark the occasion and raise a massive amount or money for charity
at the same time, I have always loved doing things for a good cause and this time
I really wanted to push myself to the limit and I am sure 30 challenges will!!

What challenges are you doing and which are you most excited about/looking
forward to?

I am really excited about the skydive, I have always wanted to do one and
have convinced 34 mad people so far to jump out of the plane with me!
All to raise money for Hope for children
I also can’t wait to trek the Great Wall of China, I think it will be the most
amazing and challenging experience.
Here are a few of the challenges I am doing but if you want to see a full list
of booked challenges then have a look at my website:
A mud run, Skydive, Eton 750m open water lake swim, Windsor 1500m 
open water river swim, Great British 10k run, HSBC dualathon, London to Paris bike ride, Full kilomathon, Trek the great wall of China, Abseiling , Silverstone Half marathon, Everest base camp trek, Full Marathon, Blowdry-athon at Clipso hair and finally to Give Blood are some of them!

Which challenge is your biggest fear and why?

I am extremely needle-phobic so the most personal challenge to me will be to
give blood, It is something I have always wanted to do as I have a rare blood
group but I have never been able to as I could never ever even come close to
bringing myself to do it. I spoke to an amazing Lady called Linda who is a
Hypnotherapist who has a Harley Street clinic and she has offered her services
to help me overcome my fear free of charge to help me raise money for HOPE.
Wish me luck!!!!
