In truth, Eliza Rebeiro could be Inside Croydon’s hero of every week.
Since her mid-teens, this 20-year-old from South Croydon has exhibited considerable leadership, imagination and courage, establishing the inspirational Lives Not Knives campaign.
Later this month, all to try to raise a bit of dough for LNK’s projects, Rebeiro, together with her mother, Monique, will be jumping out of an aeroplane from a great height, in a sponsored sky dive.
The things some people do for a bit of publicity.
Any money raised will be spent on anti-violence roadshows to tour local schools.
With a sponsorship target of £3,000, LNK has just a week to reach that goal. You can help them by visiting their web page here and making a donation.
