Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I'm not sure if you know the story... so here goes in a nutshell

Superwoman is a networking event for leading Welsh business women was organised by Bethan Darwin.

Myself and a range of some of the most wonderful woman I've had the pleasure of meeting were invited to Superwoman 9.

I was asked to be one of the keynote speakers . It was at this event on the 10 October 2013 I met Dilys Price OBE.

The event was being filmed and off camera me & Dilys joked about getting me over my phobia of heights (that is very extreme)

I said in my quiet voice go on then after a bottle of tequilla and me and you Dilys we will go tandem.

The university director before she introduced me on stage said and great news Sian Gunney has just agreed to do a skydive for Touch Trust.

I went pale and quiet (which if you know me doesn't happen often)

The amazing Jacqui Williams SCS Aftercare in Cardiff and Welsh Woman Walking said i'll donate £200 (See I don't forget ;)


Then with one thing and another and a fair few unforseeable circumstances and wimping out.

It's now Sunday July 12th 2015 I'm ashamed to say

641 days/ 1 year, 9 months, 3 days have passed and I still haven't conquered my fear.


The good thing about the time passing is myself and Dilys have built a great friendship and she is my inspiration in life!


The thing about me is I always keep my word no matter how long it takes.


So... Time to conquer my fear (hands are sweating as I type this)


Dilys you gave me some homework to do :


Find quotes about skydiving and being in the sky


"Sky diving is the greatest sense of freedom... it's better than sex" Dilys Price OBE (I bloody hope so! ;) )


"If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it." ~Toni Morrison


"Ah, if he could have plunged up into the clouds, so as to sweep thereon through the undulating heavens over the boundless earth!—ah, if he could have floated with the flower-fragrance over the flowers,—could have streamed with the wind over the summits, through the woods!" ~Jean Paul Friedrich Richter, Hesperus, or Forty-Five Dog-Post-Days: A Biography, translated from German by Charles T. Brooks, 1865



"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return." ~Leonardo da Vinci


"At 13,000 feet nothing else matters." ~Author Unknown
