Alex’s motivation

Alex is a long-time supporter of Comic Relief and has seen first-hand how the cash you raise really makes a difference. Inspired by her recent trip to the Philippines she’s taking on this mountain of a challenge to raise money to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world, including families in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
