I will always be indebted to the Royal British Legion (TRBL) and in this 100th year after the ending of Word War 1 I felt it fitting to try and repay this great charity.
My husband Terry served as a Royal Marine for many years and in his closing years became totally dependent upon me.
After approaching the TRBL, at the suggestion of a friend, they very kindly provided a wet room at home and other aids to allow me to care for Terry as best I could. Without the care and consideration given I'm sure I would not have been able to look after Terry as I would have wished to do.
On a personal basis, I also have a fear of heights and wanted to do something that would not only benefit the TRBL but also be a personal challenge for me. So here I am and I'm going to jump with the Red Devils Free fall team on 26 June 2018.
If the truth be told, Terry spent a large proportion of his service with the Royal Marines jumping in and out of "Junglies" (Royal Naval Air Service support helicopters to the uninitiated!) so I though I'd better get my own back and join him in some aerial frolics!!
Please wish me luck and please please donate to this wonderful caring Charity.
