Story

We have decided to really challenge ourselves and go completely out of our comfort zone, by jumping out of a plane at 10,000 ft. 

As most people will know, my son Eliot suffered a brain haemorrhage at just 4 days old and was rushed to Southampton University Hospital. He was admitted to the PICU where he received 24-hour specialist care and attention from their dedicated medical team, who after initially saving his life, supported him and our family through what was an extremely difficult and traumatic time. I will be forever grateful for what they did and I want to help in my own small way, to enable other families to receive the same outstanding care provided to children going through similar traumas to Eliot.  


Of course, I wouldn't want to be jumping out of a plane on my own - so have some other lovely (crazy) friends and family who have kindly agreed to take on the challenge with me! Please support us in any way you can to reach our target, no donation is too small or insignificant. 

My husband, Jordan Fish, and friend, Oli Sykes, will be climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in October 2017 and we aim to get them closer to their fundraising target of £100,000!!!
