Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On the 12/04/2014 I’m planning to do a tandem parachute jump! In doing so I would like to try to raise money for Concern Worldwide. Concern Worldwide works in 28 of the world's poorest countries where its programmes benefit the poorest and most vulnerable people. The organisation's focus is on five programme areas: food, income and markets; education; health; HIV&AIDS.

 To give you an example of what our money can do-

 Around £18 could give 2 weeks supply of food to a family who are starving due to droughts in Somalia.

 Around £25 could buy clean water for a village for a month!

If you feel you can donate anything at all, please do so. You will be helping tackle hunger and transforming lives.  Thank you very much:)

(Please note I am paying for the parachute jump myself, so all money raised will go straight to Concern Worldwide)
