A sponsored parachute jump has raised £ 1,105 for Headway North Cumbria.
Sharon Watson and Ashleigh Hoyle from Insight Rehabilitation support a number of our members and are regulars at our Day Centre and events. They decided that they wanted to generate funds for Headway North Cumbria and came up with the idea of a sponsored parachute jump. With the blessing and financial support from their Manager, Stuart Parker, they took to the skies on 6 October 2018 and each conducted tandem parachute jumps with Skydive Northwest in the skies above the Lake District.
The following photos were taken before, during and after the jump and give a great impression of the day.
A cheque for £ 1,105 was presented to Headway North Cumbria during its Day Centre Session on 5 November 2018 by Sharon, Stuart and Ashleigh.
Headway North Cumbria would like to thank Sharon and Ashleigh for their courage and commitment, Stuart for making it possible, and of course all those that gave so generously.
The money raised will be used to support future adventurous activities for Headway North Cumbria members.
