My story

*This page is still live!! Still time to give to Hillside Animal Sanctuary!*

This is astonishing! The kindness keeps on coming! THANK YOU to each and every one of you PERSONALLY for all your continuing donations - this is beyond my wildest expectations and that of Hillside too. YOU ARE ALL MAKING SUCH A DIFFERENCE... JUST WOW!!

[My story...] I never thought I'd do a skydive, but as I turn 50(!) this month, I wanted to mark the occasion by doing something challenging and charitable. I have always loved animals, so I have combined the two. I have chosen to raise money for Norfolk-based Hillside Animal Sanctuary, which gives a new lease of life to horses, pigs, sheep, ducks, goats and more which have suffered abuse or neglect. The sanctuary relies entirely on public donations. So after weeks of anticipation - and ever-growing support - today (2 August) I finally took the plunge and threw myself out of a plane at 15,000ft to help them. It was nerve-wracking and incredible - boosted by the fact that I had so many people behind me (figuratively speaking!)

Let's not stop there! Please still help me by giving whatever you can - every pound goes towards caring for the animals. Every single donation is hugely appreciated and, like me, the sanctuary is blown away by the phenomenal generosity of contributors so far. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Hillside Animal Sanctuary.

This is incredible! Such phenomenal generosity and kindness! Please know that I see every single donation and it is so frustrating that there is no facility to comment on everyone's posts - so I can only keep expressing my heartfelt thanks here but it applies to each and every one of you xxx
