Sentinel skydive boosts hospices

First published in News

A TEAM of daredevil fundraisers from Sentinel Housing Association leapt from 10,000ft in aid of Naomi House and Jacksplace.

The super six’s skydive raised a magnificent £5,444, including match funding from Sentinel, for the Hampshire-based hospices for children and young people with life-limiting or lifethreatening conditions.

Robyn Allen, one of Sentinel’s housing apprentices who jumped to raise money, said: “It was an amazing experience and I’d definitely do it again.

“I wasn’t nervous, just really excited. But the best thing about the day was knowing we were raising so much money to help Naomi House and Jacksplace do their amazing work.”

The fearless five who made up the rest of the freefalling fundraising team were Carole Ranson, Lyndsey Higson, Tina Widdison, Leanne Henstock and Richard Bruce.

Cathryn Gee, Sentinel’s head of HR, said: “We’re really proud of our brave team of skydivers – they raised a fantastic amount of money for this brilliant local charity.”
