Charitable mum nears end of 12 challenges in 12 months

The finish line is in sight for charitable mum Sue Anstiss who is just days away from completing her 12 in 12 challenge.

For the past year the 46-year-old has been taking part in a variety of gruelling physical tests as she aims to complete 12 in as many months.

Sue is hoping to raise £5,000 for HOPEHIV, a charity which helps young children in Sub Saharan Africa whose lives have been affected by AIDS.

The mum-of-three is undertaking the challenge with colleagues from Promote PR in St Ives Road, Maidenhead, where she is a managing director.

On Monday last week Sue managed to complete a row across the English Channel all from the comfort of her office.

Teaming up with colleagues Katie Halliday, 24, Nicki Petitt, 28, and Katie Lewis, 39, they used an indoor rowing machine to complete the 33km distance - the equivalent of crossing the English Channel.

Taking just under three hours to complete, the foursome took it in turns as they juggled their working day and their cross channel quest.

"It was quite interesting because it was in the office and it was not part of an event," said Sue, of Hayes Close.

"We all ached a lot on the arms and legs at the end but we did it."

On Saturday Sue ticked off another challenge as she cycled 100km through Windsor and Maidenhead.

Sue also gave up drinking alcohol in October as her final challenge, which will finish on New Year's Day.
