Anastasia’s fundraising challenge

Our Woodwork Instructor, Anastasia Malaveta, is aiming to cycle 630 miles (1,008 km) over the course of the next year to raise much-needed funds for Headway East Sussex. Anastasia is a qualified Cabinet Maker and runs the client woodworking sessions at Headway East Sussex.

How does woodwork help our clients?

Woodwork helps our clients with movement, balance, strength, confidence, motivation, and focus. Our clients enjoy making a wide variety of items such as candle holders, wine racks and even a Titanic boat! Woodwork really helps our clients with their rehabilitation and reablement.

And there’s running…

As well as the cycling, Anastasia plans to complete a half marathon and if all goes well she is contemplating a full marathon at the end of 2019. She also plans to take part in two 60 mile bike rides!

On 10th February 2019, Anastasia will be running in the Muddy Boots 10K in Yorkshire.

To date, Anastasia has raised £120 but her goal is to reach £500.
