My name is Caitlin and I'm 17 years old. I am in S6 and attend St Mungo's High school in Falkirk. I have always wanted to be involved in a charity event, so I have chosen to abseil down the Falkirk wheel on March 12th 2023. This will involve me abseiling 100ft off the world’s first, and only, rotating boat lift. I hope I can raise a good amount as this charity means a lot to me as they have personally helped my family and friends with a life-limiting illness. Strathcarron Hospice has also helped many of your friends and family with support and care during difficult times. With the help of donations, this means Strathcarron will remain a free service, as each day it costs roughly £14,000 to keep the vital hospice services running. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope this will explain why I want to fundraise for the hospice. Caitlin ODonnell
