Story

We are raising money for Mind Charity and Cancer Research by doing a Tandem Skydive.

MIND:-
Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling.
Mind charity offer support services and a wealth of information for anyone who has a mental health problem and those who know someone who is struggling with mental health. Your money will help to provide local services such as support groups, talk therapy, art therapy and much more.
Mind also run Elefriends which is a supportive online community where you can be yourself. We all know what it’s like to struggle sometimes, but now there’s a safe place to listen, share and be heard.

Cancer Research:-
Cancer cases continue to rise, with around a third of a million people
diagnosed every year in the UK. This figure is expected to increase
to more than 425,000 by 2030.

Today, half of the people diagnosed
with cancer in the UK will survive for 50% at least 10 years

Ten-year survival for many cancers
is now above 75% – such as breast,
skin and testicular cancer

Survival rates are still very low for some
cancers such as pancreatic, lung,
oesophageal and brain tumours. We’re
increasing our research on these cancers 15%
to save more lives.

Cancer Research UK is the world’s
leading cancer charity dedicated
to saving lives through research.
Our ambition is to bring forward
the day when all cancers are
cured, and our new strategy
will help us make this a reality.
We want survival in the UK to be
among the best in the world.
We’re focusing our efforts in four
key areas – working to help
prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier,
develop new treatments and
optimise current treatments by
personalising them and making
them even more effective.
