On the 10th May, Abby Sanderson and Glen Haggon from Consett will be freefalling from the clouds at 120MPH from a height of 10,000 feet. Why, you ask? It’s all in the name of Willowburn Hospice. Abby has already raised in excess of £4,500 for Willowburn at Christmas, Easter, and with an event held last month in memory of her father called “Ernie’s Night”. She said, “I am fundraising for Willowburn because they really looked after my Dad when he was sick. They do such a great job going above and beyond with their care”.
The skydive will take place in the Lake District and is being conducted by skylineparachuting.com. All the team at Firefly New Media and Consett Magazine wish Abby and Glen all the best in their amazing freefall adventure.
