Supporters to brave skydive for Blythe House

Brave supporters of a High Peak charity are set to take on the UK's highest skydive next month to help raise vital funds. 

Becca Gregory is one of the team members who will be taking the plunge from 15,000ft on Saturday 26 September to raise money for Chapel-based Blythe House Hospicecare. 

Becca, who is Blythe House's fundraising and events coordinator, said: "Through working as a fundraiser at Blythe House, I have seen first hand how important it is that their services continue to be available to anyone in our community that needs them.

"I wanted to set myself a challenge and do some fundraising myself! Although the thought of jumping out of a plane makes me feel sick, I am determined to do it! 

"Blythe House is there for anyone living in and around the High Peak who has cancer or a life limiting illness, along with their families. It is so important to support the hospice as we never know when we may need it for ourselves or a loved one."

Becca is close to reaching her £1,000 fundraising target, which will help patients receive local hospice services. 

Anyone who wishes to sponsor her can do so by visiting her Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/becca-gregorybh

There are also still some places left on the skydiving team so if you fancy getting involved, you can send a message to the Blythe House Hospicecare Facebook page or email events@blythehouse.co.uk
