£1,365raised of £1,200 target by 50 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,365 to Support two amazing charities Kitty's Dream & 4louis by undertaking a tandem skydive.

    Southampton, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 6th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On the 30th May this year my sister Kelly & brother in law Grant were left heartbroken when their baby boy Lucas was born sleeping. This has been a devastating time for the whole family. I felt I wanted to do something to raise awareness and funds for Kitty's Dream and 4louis. These charities were chosen by Kelly and Grant as they both helped to make this utterly distressing time slightly more bearable.

    So on the 22nd September 2017 I will undertake a self-funded tandem skydive from 15,000 feet. - Unregistered charity

    Supporting bereavement & neo-natal midwives, providing cot companions (teddy), handmade blankets and hats. They are also dedicated to improving facilities for bereaved families at the Princess Anne hospital so that parents can spend as much time as possible with their babies before they say goodbye. There is currently no funding from the nhs for this - Registered charity number 1172212

    4louis provide memory boxes to hospitals across the UK for stillbirth, neo-natal, infant & child bereavement. 4louis also provide moses baskets that are incorporated into cuddle cots to allow parents up to 72 hours with their babies. They also provide photography equipment to the hospitals and refurbishment of bereavement suites.

    All donations will be gratefully received, so that these charities can continue their fantastic work.

    Thank you for your support

      A massive thank you to everyone who has sponsored me either via my crowdfunding page or in person, Here is a photo from my skydive yesterday. An emotional day for the whole family. I think after the deductions from just giving and with money people have given me in person I should have raised around £1,400 for these amazing charities. I have achieved more than I thought possible thanks to your generosity xxx
