A hairdresser is going to conquer her fear of heights with the help of her mother in law to raise money for a local charity.

Michela Flyn, who works at Uppercut, in Market Place, Romford, said she decided to set herself the challenge of abseiling the O2 arena to raise funds for Home-Start Havering - which supports struggling family’s of young children.

“I’m nervous already,” said 27-year-old Michela. “I have always been scared of heights and it’s something I have always wanted to conquer and it’s not like a bungee jump - I think that would kill me!

“I’m just going to brave it and do it. I’m doing with my mother in law who is also scared of heights - it’s going to be really funny.”

Michela’s manager, Gabrielle Adat, commended Michela for her bravery and said she wouldn’t fancy swapping places.

“I think she’s very brave for doing it because I wouldn’t want to do it and I’m not particularly scared of heights. It’s really brave and it’s brilliant to raise money for a local charity.”

Lorraine Clear, manager at Home-Start Havering, thanked Michela for her efforts.

“We are really happy that Michela has decided to do fundraising for us because every little helps and it will help fund a family.”
