Our parachute jump is this week. We have raised 3/4 of our target. Thank you to those who have sponsored our event. To those who still wish to, they still have time.
Emma & Kerry
Emma &Kerry have been great friends for many years. They have taken on many challenges together.
This year they plan on doing a challenge to raise money for charity by doing something exciting. They have decided to do a parachute jump in Whitchurch on 24th August 2023. Now some people may think that they have lost their minds but they are both looking forward to supporting each other with this challenge.
They have decided to choose a charity each and split the money between the two charities.
Her chosen charity is the Cardiology Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
A cardiologist is a healthcare provider who can treat chest pain, high blood pressure and heart failure, as well as problems with heart valves, blood vessels and other heart and vascular issues. They can order tests like electrocardiograms, echocardiograms and CTs (computed tomography) to find out what’s wrong
Her reason for choosing this charity is because they help her husband Eric and others to gain some normality and independence in their day to day lives.
She ran a half marathon at Lake Vyrnwy to raise money for them in 2018!

Her chosen charity is SYST Shropshire Youth Support Trust.
SYST is a registered charity that offers holistic and bespoke support to young people who are not in education, employment or training. So far the trust has supported nearly 2500 young people.
Her reason for choosing this charity is so the trust can assist many more young people to build their confidence by offering employment support, wellbeing support, or even helping them to set up their own business!

The money that is being raised will be collected by UK Skydiving Adventures, they will then issue payment to our chosen charities.
Emma and Kerry hope that you can offer sponsorship to help them to raise funds to support their chosen charity.
