Katherine’s cousin Tori Kiff also did a sky-dive on the same day and together they raised just under £1,000 in memory of their much-loved Gran.
Katherine Broad, Account Senior - Haines Watts North Devon says: “The North Devon Hospice was most supportive, not only to my Grandmother but also our family during such a difficult time. My cousin, Tori and I decided we wanted to do something to raise money for the hospice and the sky-dive was something my Gran would have thought was a great idea. I am so grateful also to Haines Watts for contributing monies towards the jump so that I could raise more funds in sponsorship.”
Stephen Roberts, Chief Executive of North Devon Hospice, praised both Katherine’s and Tori’s bravery and amazing fundraising abilities saying, “We are so grateful for what Katherine and Tori have done. Leaping from a plane at 15,000 ft. Because Katherine and Tori’s Grandmother was cared for by us, they will have seen first-hand the difference that North Devon Hospice makes to local people every single day. £1,000 helps us provide our free care and support to those affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. This amount would help fund our new Hospice to Home service which provides care and support in patients’ own homes around the clock when symptoms become more severe. This allows more people to remain at home and can avoid an unnecessary and distressing admission to hospital. We can’t thank Katherine, Tori and Haines Watts North Devon enough for supporting North Devon Hospice in this way.”
