A Tunbridge Wells woman has embarked on a fundraising mission to complete six challenges in as many months in aid of Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.

Marketing administrator Natalie Sparrow, has already completed a 10k run in Monaco and a 90-mile bike ride in the New Forest.

Next week (May 9th), she will get back in the saddle for the 225km Coast to Coast bike ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth.

In June, she will set off at midnight for the 26-mile Edinburgh Moonwalk before running the London 10k a month later.

And finally, in August, she will get take part in the 100-mile Prudential Ride in London to complete her fundraising for the air ambulance.

She said: “The conditions for my first two events have been challenging and mentally testing but I’m determined to continue with the remaining challenges.

“My mindset has always been that if I commit to do something I will see it through and giving up is not an option. I may not be the quickest person out there but at least I’m giving it a go.”

Natalie works for Sundridge-based housing developer Ward Homes who have chosen the air ambulance as its Charity of the Year.

She has so far raised £375 for the charity helicopter which relies almost entirely on donations, and can be sponsored at www.justgiving.com/Nataliesparrow
