Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
As if a week of golf in sunny Florida wasn't enough - tough, but somebody's got to do it- I've decided to sign up to the World's Highest Skydive at 18,000 feet, in Titusville, Florida while I'm there.
It's all booked and paid for, and I figured it might be a good opportunity to raise some much needed funds, but more importantly, raise awareness for a charity which is very close to my heart.
As you may or may not know, my mother is currently living with dementia.
I have experienced, first hand, the fantastic support on offer from Alzheimer Scotland (Lewis & Harris), and, in all honesty, I don't know where we'd (Joey MacAskill, her wonderful full-time carer, extended family and myself), be without them over the past 12 months.
Locally, Alzheimer Scotland (Lewis & Harris) provide direct care services, activities and support, to people with dementia and their families and carers. Their specialist dementia services provide personalised back-up, designed around each individual's abilities and interests. In order to continue providing the wide range of activities and support currently available - they rely on annual fundraised income, so I'd like to do what I can to support, and I'll keep you all updated on the jump after it happens!
