Essex dental nurse to face phobia of heights to raise money for Zambia charity mission
A dental nurse from Essex is preparing to face her phobia of heights in a bid to raise money to fund a charity mission to Zambia.
Rianne Dearing-Aspinall, 23, will tackle a 500-metre, 100mph zip-wire across Mount Snowdon to raise money for her trip. Rianne, who suffers from a fear of heights, has admitted that she is nervous about taking on Europe’s longest and fastest zip line, but said that she is eager to challenge herself. The thought of raising money for a good cause will spur her on, and she has secretly signed her mum, Julieanne, up for moral support.
Rianne is taking on the spine-tingling challenge to raise money to cover a trip to Zambia, which has been organised by the charity, Dentaid. Rianne, from Oasis Dental Care in Great Dunmow, will be spending a fortnight in Zambia, providing basic dental care to adults and children who have probably never seen a dentist before. Dentaid oversees dental projects all over the world and Rianne is looking forward to using her skills to help others.
To travel to Zambia and spend two weeks working in local communities, Rianne is aiming to raise £2,500. The trip will take place between June 9th and June 23rd.
