Saturday the 9th July 2016 was a momentous day for the whole Footprint family and Shenise in particular! It was on this day that after all of the build up, Shenise took to the skies to perform a ‘wing walk’ in an effort to raise money for a truly excellent cause.
We are both delighted and proud to announce that as of the 25th July, Shenise has raised over £1500!!!
Taking a Closer Look at the Big Day
Whilst we don’t believe that this comes anywhere close to experiencing flying on the outside of a plane, the video below offers a wonderful glimpse into the lengths that Shenise went to in order to raise funds for Matthew’s Friends.
The gallery below shines a light on some of the other moments through the day.

Why Did Shenise Decide To Do The Wing Walk?
For a look into why Shenise has decided to undertake this amazing feat, check out below for a little insight.
“I decided that I wanted to do something different this year so in a mad moment with friends I suggested Wing Walking (think wine was involved). Other than being shocked my friends said what a great idea. “But just one thing you don’t like heights Shenise” – oh yeah I forgot about that, but you know what it’s just a fear I can do this and overcome a fear I have had forever.”
“It’s for such a great cause and charity Matthew’s Friends. The staff & volunteers work so hard. Luckily I will be fitted with 4 different camera’s & a Go Pro so if I pass out then I’ll be able to watch the footage back. So I would really appreciate your donation for this great charity.”
