Story

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED.

I WAS UNABLE TO DO THE SKYDIVE BECAUSE A WEEK BEFORE THE EVENT, MY GP REFUSED TO SIGN THE CONSENT FORM. ALL DONATIONS HAVE GONE STRAIGHT TO THE CHARITY. A BIG THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR DONATING EVEN THOUGH I COULDN'T DO IT IN THE END.

IF ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A DONATION, PLEASE ADD IT HERE. IT WILL GO STRAIGHT TO THE CHARITY.

THANK YOU, VICKIE

 

Hi I am raising money for Wood Green Animal Shelters by doing a tandem 10,000ft skydive. I also have vertigo, but I'm thinking it's so high up that hopefully it won't matter! If you would like to sponsor me, any amount is much appreciated. Even £1 will help. I have to raise a minimum of £400.

What I'll be doing...

Harnessed to a Skyline professional, I'll be jumping from 10,000ft, freefalling 5,000 at 120mph and then riding the parachute down to the ground. And then probably heading for the nearest pub.  

The jump will be taking place at Peterborough Airfield on Sunday 2 October with Skyline.

About the charity...

Wood Green Animal Shelters is a registered charity. It takes in and rehomes around 5,500 unwanted and mistreated animals every year.

Stats & facts for 2010...

We cared for over 5,500 lost and unwanted animals.

We rehomed 2507 cats and kittens and 1469 dogs and puppies.

53 puppies were helped by our fostering volunteers.

22,000 medical checks and over 2,000 neutering procedures were carried out.

95% of animals are successfully re-homed.

79% of our income comes from legacies and donations.

At 52 acres, our Cambridgeshire Centre is one of the largest rehoming centres in Europe.

We are now one of the largest organisers of Parachuting and Skydiving courses in the UK with over 7000 people a year making their first time jump with us. Many of these jumps are made for charity and we are delighted that Skyline jumpers have so far raised £4.5million for over 1,500 charities.
