10,000ft Leap For Charity

10,000ft Leap For Charity

UPDATE: 20/6/2016

Well!  The team duly turned up at 08:30 only to find that low cloud and poor weather conditions caused the jump to be abandoned late afternoon.  Most of the team have rescheduled their jump for Friday 25th.  Weather permitting – so still time to sponsor them using the link below.
Below is a picture of the team last Saturday – still smiling and full of optimism.

11 brave people from Herts MS Therapy Centre will be leaping out of a plane at 10,000 feet to raise funds for Letchworth charity Herts MS Therapy Centre.  The 11 include staff, volunteers and friends of the Centre, which helps people with any long term, age related, or neurological condition.

Cathy Dulley is one of the fearless group who will be plummeting through the clouds at 120 mph on Saturday 18th June. Each person’s goal is to raise vital funds for this local charity.  She says: ”Of course we are terrified, but we’re all very excited about our skydive too. Each of us will jump with a qualified instructor which should help to calm our a nerves… a bit! The freefall at the start will be the most exhilarating part – we’ll be falling through the clouds – literally! ”

Mark Boscher, Chief Executive of Herts MS Therapy Centre, is proud of everyone who has signed up to complete the sky-high challenge. He adds: “The team are very aware that every pound raised will be used to help a local person fighting a long term condition such as MS, Cancer, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME or Stroke. I am impressed by the dedication of those who are completing the skydive and grateful for the support of their sponsors.”
