Nikki's Year of Suffering

This post is to highlight the grit, determination and positive attitude of Nikki who is over the course of the year undertaking physical challenge after challenge to raise money for Orchid, a charity in aid of male cancer treatment. Her blog is an inspiring and enjoyable read, and you can find there her list of challenges as well as details about Orchid and how to donate.

The overwhelming impression I always get of Nikki is just what a positive person she is and I think this is reflected in the support she has received so far.
