Bridgette’s Charity Skydive

First Step are very pleased to help local lady; Bridgette in her fundraising for such a worthwhile charity.

Read Bridgette’s Story here:

Francis – Bridgette’s son at 18 months

My aim is to raise £1750

At the great old age of 80 I have decided to do something a little different and perform a tandem skydive in 2019 to raise money for children in the UK with Cancer & Leukaemia. The Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group charity is very close to my heart as I lost my son Francis to Cancer at age 5 years. I want to help provide support to all Children and their families the best I can. Research and care has advanced so much since the time of Francis’ diagnosis and the more we can contribute to further this research the better. To be able to give to such a great charity and provide these children with the chance to live better lives is a beautiful gift and I hope it can, maybe, even help someone to live to be as old as me!

I hope you can all help me achieve my fundraising goal, I will be so grateful for any donations. If you want to find out some more information about the CCLG charity visit their website or see the following:
