On Sunday 17th June Catherine Simpson from Rushden will take
part in a tandem skydive to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Make-A-Wish is the corporate charity for Catherine's
employer NFU Mutual. The charity grants magical wishes to children and young
people who are fighting life-threatening conditions.
Catherine says, "It is a lifelong ambition of mine, so
to have the opportunity to do it and raise money for such a good cause at the
same time - I could not refuse."
The skydive is at Hinton Airfield, Oxfordshire, and
Catherine will jump from two miles up in the sky, freefalling for around 45
seconds and reaching speeds of up to 120 miles per hour, before floating back
down to earth.
Catherine would like to raise at least £325 from her
skydive, and has set up a Just Giving page for donations: www.justgiving.com/cat-simpson.
