Meet Team Edward – Peter Dent

peter and whisperPeter Dent founded Edward’s Trust in 1989, along with his former wife Hillary. As founder, you would think that Peter would be safe from adrenaline filled fundraising, but not at Edward’s Trust! He will once again be taking part in our abseil, this year to be held on June 8th, as part of Team Edward – well, we couldn’t celebrate the 25th Anniversary without him! Peter says:

“A lot has changed over the last 25 years but one thing remains the same. The pain of loss when someone special in our life dies. I set up Edward’s Trust all those years ago to build a support network for bereaved parents and children. The intention was not to remove the pain but, simply, to support those in grief. I now plan to jump off a building (I am told that it’s called abseiling) to help to ensure that support from Edward’s Trust will continue to be available for the next 25 years. Can you help?
My aim is to raise at least £2500 (ie the equivalent of 100 people donating £25 each). It would be great if you could help me in my quest to support the work of the Trust.”

“I shall be refreshing my relationship with Whisper the bear for this challenge. This year he has agreed to descend blindfolded! Brave bear.”
