Story

Update

Irene completed her skydive on 21st May, raising over £1100 for St Joseph's! She's ready for her next challenge so she'll be taking part in a 262 ft abseil at the ArcelorMittal Orbit on the 4th August! 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This year Irene Lewington will be 90 years of age and to celebrate she's taking part in a skydive for St Joseph's Hospice. Irene believes that the hospice is the best place that you can rest when you're ill. Some of Irene's friends have received fantastic care at St Joseph's. 

Irene is Hackney born and bred and is supporting a Hackney charity as a way of giving back to the community. 

Please please consider sponsoring her for this brave and inspiring challenge!

St Joseph’s Hospice opened in Hackney in 1905, and since then has been caring for and supporting people affected by serious illness in eight London boroughs.

 We work to improve the quality of life of more than 2,100 patients with life-limiting conditions each year, helping them live life to the full, to the very last. We have to raise £19,000 each day to keep our vital services running and available to the 2.2 million people in our diverse community, so every penny raised for our hospice is really important, and very much appreciated.
