In the final several days of Antony Gormley's One & Other project on the Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square, London, Cara is going to ascend the plinth in support of Multiple Sclerosis awareness.
Her plinth hour is 1900 hrs BST, Monday the 12th of October.
She writes in her bio:
"I thought that this project was an unusual and unique opportunity and so put my name forward. During the hour on the plinth, I am going to try to bring awareness to www.shift.ms - an online community for young people with Multiple Sclerosis. When I was diagnosed with MS, I found the website to be a source of support and reassurance during a weird and shocking time.
So, if anyone who is affected by MS, or anyone who'd like to know more about it, you are welcome to become part of the shift.ms community!"
Bests wishes, Cara!
Cara's plinth hour can be viewed live at http://www.oneandother.co.uk/. If you miss it live, a refeed of the hour is available on the One&Other website within a couple of hours of the plinter's descent.
