Firstly thank you for clicking the link and finding your way to this page!!
For those of you that know me well I am most confident with two feet on the road running half marathons and such like and have raised lots of money from that. This time I have decided to find a more difficult challenge to raise money for a charity that is very close to heart at the moment. Authough I dont have a great fear of heights, the idea of jumping out of a plane at 15,000 feet isnt exactly filling me with joy.
St Lukes is a hospice based in Plymouth and the surrounding areas and "provides specialist end of life care to over 3,500 patients a year from across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall."
"It costs £6million a year to run St Luke’s so that we can provide our care, free of charge to the local community. With only 30% funding from the government our income generation department works hard each year to reach the £4.5million fundraising target to keep our service running"
St Lukes Hospice has been a massive support to my family and I over the last 6 months, they are always on the other end of the phone whenever we need help, support or advice. I am eternally grateful for this so now I have decided to give something back.
To do the dive the charity asks that we raise £345; £200 paying for me to do the jump and £145 going to the charity. HOWEVER I believe that every penny I raise should go to the charity, therefore I will be putting the first £200 in out of my own pocket to pay for my own jump so I can guarantee every penny you donate will go straight to the hospice.
I know its a bit cheesy but litterally every penny counts, so please donate a penny a pound or more and I will be eternally grateful!!
