Lynn steps out in style for charity

10 September 2008 @TeessideUni


Fearless University of Teesside Student Enterprise Ambassador Lynn Wrightson is preparing to take brave steps to raise funds for charity.

Lynn, who works in the University’s Academic Enterprise department, will be taking part in a fundraising fire walk in aid of the Butterwick Children’s Hospice in Stockton.

The event, which will see fundraisers walk barefoot across a bed of hot coals, will be held at Chicago Rock Café in Middlesbrough at 8pm on Sunday 28 September.

She decided to take part as she is a keen supporter of the charity. Lynn said: ‘I really enjoy a daring challenge. So when the opportunity arose to take part, I jumped at the chance.’

Lynn, of Middlesbrough, who has worked at the University for 11 years, has completed other fundraising challenges for a range of charities including a 10km run, a skydive and an abseil from the Transporter Bridge.

Sponsor Lynn by contacting her on 01642 384580 email or online at

Other hardy fundraisers at the University who might like to join Lynn and take part in the fundraising firewalk can contact Steph Wood at the Butterwick Children’s Hospice on 01642 628930.
