Students skydiving for hospice
A pair of students of Worcester Sixth Form College are taking the plunge for charity by taking part in a sponsored skydive.
Isabella Guida-Jones, of Norton and Imogen Kimberley, from the Fernhill Heath area, will be raising money for Wildwood Drive-based St Richard’s Hospice.
The charity cares for adults with serious progressive illnesses.
The girls will jump from a plane at 10,000 ft, experiencing the rush of falling through the air at 120mph.
Between them, they hope to raise £1,000 for the hospice.
They are both excited about the skydive, especially as they are doing it together so can support each other throughout the whole experience.
Imogen said a skydive was something she had always wanted to do, while Isabella was both excited and nervous about the once-in-a-lifetime experience, which will help a charity close to both of the girls’ hearts after caring and supporting for close family members in their time of need and as a worthy cause.
Isabella said: “I don’t know how we’ll prepare for it but the plan is not to think about it too much until the day.”
