Hello and thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
Let us just give you a short, sharp brief of what we're doing, on Monday 8th September, we will be jumping/ pushed out of a plane, strapped to a Red Devil at 13,000ft, taking us 45 seconds to return to the airfield in aid of Help for Heroes, a charity set up in October supporting those wounded in the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The "Red Devils" may sound familar as they are the official parachute display team of both the Parachute Regiment (The Paras) and the British Army. This team is manned by 25 serving soldiers from the Parachute Regiment's three full time battalions: 1, 2 & 3 PARA.
Help for Heroes is a charity very close to all the Dannatts' hearts and since it was set up last autumn it has literaly flown, going from strength to strength, providing direct and vital support to those wounded by war. We feel that there is no greater thank you for our servicemen and woman then to look after them on their return home and give them the greatest possible care we can,which they so richly deserve.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor us: Help for Heroes gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
Thank you for your time,
lots of love,
Richard and Richenda x
