A DISABLED woman from Parkstone is set to abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in August to raise funds for Forest Holme Hospice.

Tiffany Watson, 49, has central core disease and malignant hyperthermia.

Despite her disability, Tiffany is keen to undertake a daring challenge in aid of Forest Holme Hospice, alongside her personal trainer of ten years Scott Exley.

Tiffany said: "I said to Scott I wanted to do something for myself while I still can with my disability. I thought abseiling was ideal as it won't put too much stress on my body but it’s still daring. Scott is scared stiff, but I’m getting my revenge for all my training. Scott is keeping me as strong as possible.

"This challenge is good for me as it’s positivity with a disability. It shows that you can do things when you’re disabled

"Forest Holme looked after my mum and dad and were absolutely amazing. The care there is on another level and like never I’ve witnessed before. My heart is very much with them.

"They were so good with the counselling they offered me. They looked after me and my sister after our parents died, which was 15 months apart. The hospice is amazing and it’s just a brilliant place.

"Forest Holme haven’t been able to do any of their normal events and the impact on them as been heart-breaking."

Tiffany and Scott will be abseiling 100 metres down the Spinnaker Tower on August 7.

The pair hope that vital funds will be raised for Forest Holme Hospice through their thrilling fundraiser.

Tiffany said: "Anything we raise is a bonus and a win as it will help Forest Holme.

"On the JustGiving site we set the target as £500 but it would be great to double that. We started fundraising on Friday, May 28 and through sponsorship forms have already made £150."
