I’m not sure why I decided to do this skydive? Call it impulse…..
Last year, I started working on a council directed community project, helping support many isolated people with various health issues improve their lives. During this time I have met some incredibly brave people and families who have been remarkably selfless caring or dealing with some of life’s unfortunate illnesses and dilemmas.
I consider myself very fortunate to be healthy and am living my life to the full after my own personal experiences a few years ago, so much so that when I saw the advert for Caudwell Children recently in the local press to do a sky dive and raise money for their charity, I decided this was my opportunity to give something back.
So yes here I am, already preparing to get myself fit and in tune to do the jump in September and with your added support I know this experience will encourage other people to come forward to do similar fundraising….. So get donating…… and give to this very worthwhile cause? Your help will help others to get the help they truly deserve.
Caudwell Children provide family support services, equipment, treatment and therapies for disabled children and their families across the UK. They also run an Enable Sport programme for talented disabled athletes and Destination Dreams holidays for children fighting life threatening conditions.
Passionate, positive and practical, they are motivated to improve the lives of the estimated 770,000 disabled children living in the UK, starting with the 400,000 living in or on the margins of poverty.
