Anyone who knows me is probably aware that I am extremely clumsy, uncoordinated and un-athletic!! However I am turning 30 in November and I think if I'm going to do something like this now is the time..!!
So when the opportunity came up to complete a 10,000 feet skydive to raise money for Start360, it was a no-brainer. I love the organisation and the people who work there - but more importantly, I have seen first hand the passion and commitment of staff, how much difference it makes to the clients they work with, and how everything - and every expense - is with the client in mind. Working for Start360 opened my eyes to adversities so many young people and adults face that I would not have seen otherwise. It was incredible to see the positive changes being made by the organisation and it's staff.
If you aren't aware, Start360 delivers 25 services across Northern Ireland - in the areas of health, justice and employability, working with young people, adults and families who are often disengaged from mainstream services and marginalised from their communities. You can find out more on their website - they really are a worthy cause.
So please give generously to an amazingly worthwhile charity - and not just because the more I raise, the more I won't be able to chicken out given that it's all for such a good cause!! I will also be contributing at least £150 of my own money for this.
I will be doing my skydive in Coleraine, Northern Ireland on Sunday 14th October - if you want to come support/laugh at me please let me know!
Thank you in advance xxx
