  • My Story

On the 25th November, I will be turning 21 years old! In normal circumstances, I would be celebrating with my entire family and friends, however this is obviously not the case.

It got me thinking, what could I do instead that would make me feel a lot better about having my 21st in lockdown? I thought long and hard and have decided to create the SJs 21 challenge.

I will be walking 21km on the 21st November and aiming to raise money to support a great charity like Age UK - Essex. I will be completing this with my sister and my best friend.

Why have I chosen Age UK? Well, like many people, the elderly hold a very strong place in my heart, especially my grandparents. With this virus, it has been torture not being able to see them properly, give them a hug and just be there for them.

I want to be able to raise some money to help support and combat loneliness over this second lockdown as well as coming into the holiday period.
