I have decided to take part in a tandem skydive on Sunday 30th August, in order to raise as much money for Mind as I can.
Mind is a charity that is very important to my family. My mum has Bipolar disorder (a type known as Cyclothymia) and has suffered from chronic depression for many years. Despite the many highs and lows, she's still the bravest, strongest woman I know. Mind has helped my mum in many ways, including the various support booklets and leaflets they supply.
For my 21st birthday, my parents booked me a surprise skydive. I turned it down and regretted it ever since (even though the thought absolutely terrifies me). Now, it's my time to make up for that moment, whilst also trying to make a difference.
Help me break the stigma of mental health and support me falling through the air. My aim is to raise at least £600... But even more would be fantastic. I really want to beat my target!
