    Story

    Jump! For Lives Not Knives

    Jump! For LNK

    Knife crime is a truly devastating stain on our society, not only for the victims, but also for families, friends, neighbours and even perpetrators. With education, guidance and support knife crime can be brought to an end. Lives Not Knives is a progressive charity which pioneers opportunities for young people to drive a brighter future.

    On Friday 15 June, Clara and I will be jumping out of a plane (?!?) to raise donations for this worthy cause. We will be doing this through a BNP Paribas Global Markets initiative called #Impact 600 where employees can spend a working day volunteering for change.

    Hannah: When I think of jumping out of a plane above the clouds and hurtling 125 miles an hour down to earth I feel sick. Sick is an understatement - sweating palms, dry mouth, narrowing vision, hot and cold prickles, pulsating nausea, jelly knees ... I feel WIRED and frozen at the same time … Its raw, adrenaline-fueled FEAR. However, I know that after 1 minute of terror my fears will be dissolved and I will feel safe again. Can you imagine how debilitating it must be to feel that fear simply walking home? Popping to the supermarket? Watching your kids walk to school? Knife crime has many victims but no victors. The pain it causes is anxiety at best and death at worst. Throwing myself out of a plane in an effort to reduce knife crime by raising awareness and much-needed funds is a terrifying privilege which I am proud to take.

    Clara: Skydiving has always been on my bucket list. But I always thought I had to wait to do it with the right person, or at the right place. When LNK came to us with the opportunity of skydiving to help them raise money and help victims of such terrible crimes; I did not hesitate. I couldn't find a better reason to skydive for the first time, as it allows me to help raising awareness and funds for this amazing charity.

    Please support us and help us reach our target!
