Skydiving for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice

You may remember that back in March, the usual Digital Surrey event was taken over by Farnham Twestival to raise money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

It was a great event that witnessed the wonderful business community of Digital Surrey get together to raise some serious money for a fantastically worth cause.

Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice offers Specialist Palliative Care to people facing the end of their life and to those who love and care for them. The NHS covers less than 12% of its costs – under half the national average for hospices – so they heavily rely on support from the community.

Organising Farnham Twestival gave me a great insight into all the work that the hospice does, so when the opportunity came about to help support them further I jumped at the chance (no pun intended).

So, on October 8, to mark World Hospice Day, I’ll be taking part in a tandem skydive with the Red Devils in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

This will involve me free-falling from 13,000ft whilst accelerating from 0-120mph in 10 seconds. Did I mention that heights aren’t my favourite thing?!

Right now I’m very excited (not to mention terrified) to be putting my fears aside to raise some much needed funds for a great cause. If you’d like to find out more information, please visit: http://www.justgiving.com/Grace-Park
