Story

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!
Remember- ALL of the money pledged will go to the charity.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
