    Weʼve raised £677 to skydive to raise money for Neath Foodbank

    Funded on Monday, 2nd October 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    This summer I'm raising money for Neath Foodbank by doing a sponsored skydive down the Gower!

    I’ve set an ambitious fundraising target of £500, and to help me get there, everyone who donates £5 or more gets entered into a prize draw to win a free merch bundle, and I'll learn and record cover song of your choice! Anyone who donates £50 or more bypasses the prize draw and automatically wins their own bundle!

    The prize includes:

    - A USB with my FULL discography on it (1 album, 3 EPs), plus a secret album of 12 cover songs

    - An A4 signed limited edition artprint featuring Scott Chalmers’ photography

    - An A6 limited edition artprint featuring illustration by Tukru Makes Art

    - A set of stickers

    - A photo diary of my journey as an artist from childhood

    - A hand-written thank-you card

    To enter the draw, donate £5 or more by 30th September, and forward your JustGiving email donation receipt to, along with your cover song of choice.

    About the Challenge

    The skydive is taking place on Sunday 3rd September, where I'll be jumping out of a plane over the Gower and freefalling 10,000 feet. I'm covering the cost of the skydive myself - all the money raised goes direct to the foodbank.

    I'm terrified of heights so this is a huge challenge for me - it's all part of my ongoing work to push myself out of my comfort zone, do the things that scare me, and build my confidence and bravery.

    I'm raising money for Neath Foodbank, who do amazing work for the local community, which is in even higher demand right now due to the current cost of living crisis. I've been volunteering at the foodbank this year, and I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work they do for the community, all without fixed funding or staff, off the back of a small dedicated group of volunteers. Funds raised will allow them to keep doing this important work, so they can purchase food for parcels, and pay for vital maintenance and admin costs.

    Please donate what you can, even if it's only a small amount - I've set an ambitious fundraising target but I think we can hit it!

    Please share this page too - let's get it seen by as many people as possible so we can raise as much as possible.

      Thank you all so much for your kind donations, I'm so pleased and proud of the amazing amount of money we've raised together for such a vital cause! I've set a new stretch goal of £650 (only an extra £38 to go) - any final donations would be greatly appreciated, even if it's only a few quid. The fundraiser is closing on Saturday 30 September.

      I did it! I was terrified, especially the anticipation on the ascent, but it was exhilarating and breathtaking and one of the most amazing things I've ever done. There's no greater feeling than overcoming your fears and realising that your life and experiences can be so much bigger than you ever imagined. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated - I hit £555 this morning! I'm going to set a stretch goal of £600 and keep it open for another week or two - please share and hopefully we can get another few donations. :)
