Story

We are back with a new host of thrill seekers for this year's Jump For Jon ready to raise life-changing funds for the Jon Shaw Foundation. This year's sky dive will be Monday 29th May in Whitchurch, Shropshire. Each team member has a personal target of £500 to raise, so please help in supporting, be it through donating (and remember add gift aid if possible too), or simply sharing their pages. 10,000ft here we come!

We would love to have at least 10 jumpers this year-if you would like to join in, we will pay for your jump, insurance and photos.

Jon Shaw Foundation was set up in memory of Jon, who died aged 19 from SUDEP (SUDDEN UNEXPECTED DEATH IN EPILEPSY) in June 2019. The charity aims to - 1. Support young people with epilepsy by providing grants for equipment such as alarms, monitors and other safety aids not normally available through NHS.2. Provide services and activities to improve the mental health of bereaved siblings and friends. 3. Promote awareness of SUDEP, work with and support other organisations specialising in the research of this devastating cause of premature mortality.
