Our Housing Support Officer, Kelly Bishop, takes to the skies for charity…
Our Housing Support Officer, Kelly Bishop, will be taking part in a skydive in aid of charity this month (June, 2017).
Kelly Bishop, will be doing the skydive on Saturday, June 17 to raise money for Cots for Tots, which is a special care baby charity for sick and premature babies.
Thirty-year-old Kelly from Weston-super-Mare, said:
“This will be the first skydive I have ever done and I am feeling a little nervous about it but I know it is for such a worthwhile charity so this will definitely get me through.
I have chosen Cots for Tots, which is based at Bristol’s Special Care Baby Unit at St Michael’s Hospital, as I have friends who have used its facilities so it is close to my heart. I hope to raise lots of money for this worthy cause.”
Cots for Tots raises funds for life-saving equipment and pioneering new facilities to transform the lives of babies from Bristol, the South West England, South Wales and throughout the UK.
The charity has its own dedicated 12 bedroom house providing free ‘home from home’ accommodation for parents, brothers and sisters of babies in the Special Care Baby Unit.
Kelly will be taking part in the skydive in Swindon on Saturday, June 17. People can donate to Kelly’s JustGiving page at https://goo.gl/xaxjsZ.
Nicky Norville, Our registered Manager, said:
“We wish Kelly the very best of luck with her skydive. It is great to see our staff doing their bit for worthwhile causes and we will be sponsoring Kelly too.”
