Amy Fletcher, Kerry Faulkner, Haley Cutts, Tracey Goughan, Charlotte Woods, Joanna Green, Shelley Tasker who work within the Specialist Holidays Group of TUI Travel PLC, home of Crystal Ski, Thomson Lakes, Austravel, Citalia and others will take the 13,000 ft plunge on September 7 in an aim to raise over £2,500 for the charity.
They will be taking part in the skydive in Netheravon alongside the Olympic rower Ben Hunt-Davis MBE and the Parachute Regiment Freefall Team the Red Devils.
For nearly 30 years the charity has applied exceptional know-how and adaptability to enable those with a disability to experience the joy of skiing alongside the able-bodied. DSUK’s adaptive ski school removes the barriers to participation faced by those with disabilities and as a result individuals gain confidence and self belief.
The girls commented: “We support DSUK because they’re absolutely committed to giving people with disabilities equal access to this wonderful sport – whatever their disability and however accomplished they are on the slopes. DSUK is reliant on donations and we will be helping them to continue their work across the country and abroad funding their activity weeks, buying new equipment and much more.”
We hope that many people will support ‘our girls’ on their very scary challenge and help raise much needed funds on www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/shg-skydive
