A PR consultant has admitted it is tough going after deciding to go bananas for charity.

Sarah Hall, managing director of Sarah Hall Consulting, is carrying out a sponsored social media silence to raise money for the Sunshine Fund.

She is abstaining from Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, Google+, Vimeo and Pinterest for a full week to coincide with the launch of the Sunshine Fund’s Go Bananas campaign, which runs throughout June.

Sarah said: “The campaign asks people to raise cash for the Sunshine Fund in whatever way they choose so I thought I’d do something that I’d find really hard and would actually make me Go Bananas.

“Already I’m finding it tough – I’ve always been a big social networker but I never realised quite how much time I spent online until now.

“I hope people will get behind me and sponsor me.”

Caroll Pattison, fund manager for the Sunshine Fund, said: “We love it when people get creative and find different ways to raise money and this is one of the more quirky we’ve seen recently.

“We’re looking forward to seeing how Sarah fares – hopefully she won’t slip up too often (or even at all) as she’s committed to paying a forfeit if she does.”
