Two birds, one stone....

I am undertaking my first tandem skydive on Sunday 27th November 2016.
I would be really grateful for any support, big or small. Please be as generous as you are able to be! The more money raised, the smaller my fear will get (I hope!) and the greater my motivation!
All donations will be split equally between both causes.
Thank you!

Bird 1: 50% of donations to WARchild who support children, families and communities whose lives have been torn apart by war. (www.warchild.org.uk)
Bird 2: 50% of donations to Upbeat Communities, a charity established by a friend of mine, who support and welcome refugees when they arrive in the UK. (http://www.upbeatcommunities.org/)
Stone: Me! Jumping out of a plane to support both causes!

    In my excitement after the jump I didn't 'check out' at the drop zone and just left! This meant I left my certificate behind which arrived in the post today! I can't believe the total on the fundraising page has topped £1000! You are wonderful, generous people!

Thank you to all of you who have sponsored me, encouraged me and supported me along the way. So far, the running total between all the different donation pathways is a whopping £1233!!
