The Christie Hospital

In September 2017, I did an 11,000ft free fall sky dive in aid of The Christie Hospital. It was an amazing experience and something I had always wanted to do but to enter you are required to raise a certain number of donations. Having Brother UK' support, through match funding, my total was boosted to nearly £800, which will help fund life-changing and life-saving work for cancer patients at The Christie. This makes me very proud as it’s a charity and cause very close to my heart.
