Fund Raising Manager of Age UK Solihull
Tandem Parachute Jump
Saturday 11th March 2017
"I'm always asking people if they'd like to do a Tandem Parachute Jump for Age UK Solihull and when they ask if I've done one, I normally shuffle my feet and look a bit sheepish and say "No".
"So I've decided to lead by example and to mark a 'special' birthday this year, I'm throwing myself out of a plane on Saturday 11 March - at Hinton Airfield in Northamptonshire. I will be attached to someone (I couldn't trust myself to pull the cord at the ultimate moment!).
"The great news is that I've already raised over £800, but I would love to get to the round £1,000 mark. If you feel you'd like to sponsor me, however small the amount, I'd be ever so grateful.
Here's the link to my online giving page:-
I totally understand if you'd prefer not to. I know there are lots of requests for charity giving all the time. But if you can - thank you. You will be helping elderly people in Solihull, many of whom have no-one they can turn to for the issues they face in older age.
