Story

I am trying to raise funds for an awesome 11 year old boy.

In January this year, my son Ben's friend was diagnosed with a brain tumour and is currently undergoing treatment in Southampton. The next few months are going to be a tough time for him. I'd love to help raise some money to help build him a 'Dengineers' den in his garden. Like all 11 year old boys, he dreams of a place where can escape, have his own space, and enjoy time with his friends.

On June 28th I'll be doing a parachute jump and would love for you to sponsor me and help raise money for this amazing project. All the costs of the jump are covered so any money you are kind enough to donate will go directly to funding the den.

There’s so much more I could tell you about this fabulous little boy, but for now his family would like to keep things private and maintain as much normality as they can for him and his siblings.

Many thanks for any money that you can spare – it really will make a huge difference. Jo x

    I did it!! Despite my nerves, yesterday I jumped out of an airplane at 10,000ft, experienced freefall for 30 seconds and managed not to break anything. And with everyone’s support and generosity, I’m so proud that we’ve helped a very special little boy (who is still WAY braver than me) to get one step closer to his dream den. Many thanks again to all who sponsored me, it will truly make all the difference. Xxxx

    Sorry for the late donation but have only recently heard about your plan to fund the den for this fantastic cause. Well done with your jump and hope they are able to build dream ‘boys space’ soon.
