Falling for Wessex Cancer Trust

On 4 July 2021, Dad and I will be jumping out of a plane (with a parachute!) as a sponsored skydive, raising money for the Wessex Cancer Trust. We will be jumping from 15,000 feet which is apparently around 3 miles?!?  Wessex Cancer Trust is celebrating 40 years of providing free, local support to anyone living with cancer in Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight. 2021 is a year of celebration and giving thanks, and the Trust is evolving to ensure it is here for anyone who needs support, for as long as they need it.

Cancer has affected all of us - every family we know has a friend or family member affected by cancer - so, Dad and I thought we’d step up and do our bit.  Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, we really appreciate it!

You can donate through Just Giving HERE or speak to Mum (Sarah!).  Every penny you can donate will make a difference - thank you.  It's going to be an amazing, if scary, challenge – however, it is all for a good cause.  We look forward to sharing how much we scream on the way down!  Thank you.

Kathleen and Richard xx
