Jenny Barton SkydiveA fundraising project by Jenny Barton
I am completing a lifelong ambition to skydive from a moving plane 15000 above ground. I am facing a rather large birthday this year and I decided now was the time to crack on with my bucket list. One of my all-time dreams has been to complete a skydive for charity and this year I am raising funds for a multiple sclerosis charity who have organised the skydive for me.
The charity is the award-winning Wessex MS Therapy Centre and offers long term ongoing therapies for people with multiple sclerosis their families and carers. It also operates two hypobaric oxygen chambers which are used to help with other conditions to include cancer, fibromyalgia, ME, wound healing, ulcers, stroke etc. The Therapy Centre recently won a national award for Innovation in Care in MS and is a completely self-funded charity.
The skydive take place at Old Sarum on Saturday 2nd June and I hope to jump at 10am. I know quite a few people in Frome who use the MS Centre and they speak very highly of the wonderful work the charity does. I have to admit I am filled with both dread and excitement just at the thought of jumping out of a plane, goodness know how I will feel on the day…
