For weeks now my friend Chris has been organising a 24 hour space-hopathon in order to raise money for Alzheimer's Society. This is taking place between 10 AM today and 10AM tomorrow (28th May). I agreed to bounce for a half-hour slot this morning, but ended up filling three with my friend Beth (pictured) and Simon. We had such a good time on the space-hoppers and as well as bouncing around we kicked a football back and forth and tried to do a synchronised space-hopper bump in mid-air (this resulted in two of us falling backwards off our hoppers!)
Not only was this great fun but I think this is such a brilliant charity to raise money for and donate to. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia and is currently affecting the lives of over 490,000 in the UK alone.
Chris is also going to be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro to raise money! Here is his Just Giving page if you want to find out more: http://www.justgiving.com/Christopher-Benson1
Good luck Chris!
