Story

St Vincents Support Centre, Newcastle helps refugees and vulnerable people with practical support including providing food, toiletries, clothing, blankets, meals and household items. The Justice and Peace Refugee Project coordinate immediate help to those on the margins of society and works longer term to address the causes of inequality and to encourage people and groups to work together for change.

On 23rd October, for my 80th Birthday I will be tandem skydiving to raise awareness, and hopefully some money, for both of these good causes. I'd be grateful for any donations. If you were considering buying me a birthday present could I ask that instead you make a small contribution here and together we can make a real difference to people living very difficult lives in our community.

    Thank you all for your wonderful support and fantastic donations. Yesterday, as promised, I jumped out of a plane at 10,000 feet and parachuted safety to the ground.

    We are 90% of the way to the target with just a few days left now until the skydive on Saturday! Hopefully the weather is kind and it can all go ahead. I'll post photos and video here once I'm safely back on the ground. Thanks all for your support.

    You've all been so generous that you smashed my original £500 target in just over a week. In fact we are already over £1000! With just over ten days to go before the parachute jump, I've rasied the target to £1500 just in case we can meet that and help even more people living difficult lives.

About the fundraiser

PHILOMENA OMALLEY

Jarrow, Tyne and Wear

I worked for many years in social work/ adoption and fostering. Later in my career I retrained as a therapist, retiring ten years ago at 70. Throughout my life equality and justice have been very important to me, and I'd like to do what I can to see both in our region.
